True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.
IACP Foundation / TASER Fallen Officer Fund
The IACP Foundation is proud to honor the memory of law enforcement officers fallen in the line of duty.
Through this fund, the Foundation provides timely and critical financial assistance to the dependent spouses and/or children of fallen officers by awarding a $5000.00 gift to assist with immediate needs.
Foundation staff and board members work to contact agency executives immediately upon learning of the death of an officer and will work directly with their agency and the family.
For questions regarding eligibility for this program, please contact Amanda Burstein via e-mail or directly at 703-836-6767.
These one-time gifts are limited to Line of Duty deaths, dependent spouses and/or children, and applications are reviewed and approved by Foundation board members for accuracy and completeness.
