Founded in 1997, the Colorado Police Officers Foundation's overall purpose is to generate funds to promote a greater understanding and awareness by the public on issues affecting the law enforcement profession.  The primary focus of the Police Officers Foundation is to foster community-wide support for law enforcement by providing supplemental resources for traumatically injured officers and their families, giving needed financial assistance to survivors of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, and building meaningful and positive officer-community partnerships.  


Some of the programs that are funded by the foundation:


  • Assistance for local lodges when a member is killed or badly hurt in the line of duty.

  • Assistance for families when their loved one is killed or badly hurt in the line of duty.

  • Law Enforcement Widows & Orphans Fund.

  • Assist Injured, Disabled, Sick, or Distressed Law Enforcement Members.

  • Law Enforcement Training and Awareness. 

  • PTSD & Stress Related Illness Education: Providing officers and families with specific education related to the effects of PTSD and other stress related effects of the law enforcement profession. Provide officers confidential treatment options.

  • Confidential Treatment Referrals: PTSD, Mental Health Wellness, Alcohol Counseling.

  • Child Identification Program: A program that creates an identification card, and provides parents with a DNA take-home kit to gather DNA to be utilized in missing child cases.
