What we do.    

The mission of the IACP Foundation is to support injured and fallen officers and their families, protect the safety of officers, and support the goals and programs of the IACP.

Why we do it.    

Tens of thousands of law enforcement officers are injured or disabled every year.  Many of those injuries, including felonious assaults against officers, are predictable and preventable. 

The IACP Foundation is committed to creating a culture of officer safety, health and wellness by supporting Association efforts that prevent officer injury and provide access to assistance for officers.  

Additionally, we honor those who have sacrificed in the law enforcement community, by giving back through our Fallen Officer Fund and through our SELECT Scholarship program.

Who we are.

IACP Foundation Provides Grants to Fallen Officers' Families

On average, one U.S. law enforcement officer is killed every 56 hours; and even one is too many.  The IACP and the IACP Foundation are committed to honoring those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and to ensuring that agencies adopt a "zero tolerance" policy when it comes to officer injury and death.

As the result of a generous gift from the TASER Foundation, the IACP Foundation is proud to provide critical, immediate support to the families of law enforcement officers fallen in the line of duty.  

An immediate gift of $5000.00 is available to the beneficiary of the fallen officer through this IACP Foundation/TASER Fallen Officer Fund.

Held each year in conjunction with the IACP's Annual Conference, the IACP Foundation's Fundraising Gala is a special night highlighting the best and bravest in professional Policing.  .

This year we raised over $160,000.00 to directly assist fallen officers' families, provide scholarships, and enhance officer safety efforts.

Check back soon for photo coverage of the event, including the IACP/Target Police Officer of the Year Award.

Thank you to all of our friends and private sector partners.

 SELECT Scholarships Distributed

One of the most rewarding of the IACP Foundation’s programs is the Survivors’ Education Law Enforcement Trust (SELECT) scholarship program, which was established to recognize the contribution made by law enforcement officers killed or permanently disabled in the line of duty. The SELECT program supports the continuing education needs of dependant family members by helping to defray educational costs for undergraduate or graduate studies.

Check back soon for photos of the awardees for the 2013-2014 school year.
