Every year the Utah State Fraternal Order of Police donates money and time to benefit numerous charities, groups and organizations in the Taylorsville area. Below are some of the arganization we have chosen to allign ourselves with:
Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.)
"The mission of C.O.P.S. is to provide resources to assist in the rebuilding of the lives of surviving families and affected co-workers of law enforcement officers, who have died in the line of duty. Furthermore, C.O.P.S. provides training to law enforcement agencies on survivor victimization issues, and educates the public of the need to support the law enforcement profession and its survivors." - C.O.P.S.
National Law Enforcement Officers' Memorial Fund (NLEOMF)
"The mission of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is to generate increased public support for the law enforcement profession by permanently recording and appropriately commemorating the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers; and to provide information that will help promote law enforcement safety." - NLEOMF
"The National 9-99 Police and Sheriff Foundation raises funds for injured or fallen officers and their families, invests in K9 safety and training, and provides counseling and mental health resources to all officers in need."
