LEORF Helps LEOs and their Families
Law Enforcement Officers put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe, run into danger while the rest of us run from it, and come to our aid each and every time we call for their help. They do so selflessly to protect us and our communities. The Law Enforcement Officers Relief Fund (LEORF) provides immediate assistance to Law Enforcement Officers or their immediate surviving family member when they need it most, when they are faced with financial hardship as a result of a critical incident or catastrophic event. The funds are to provide some assistance in transition of long-term recovery not to make them whole.

The PTRF/LEORF was created to provide specialized relief when, tragically, a law enforcement officer is killed in the line-of-duty or seriously injured in the line-of-duty, and when a law enforcement officer is faced with the horrible impact of a natural disaster.Donate Today

Pledge of support
I proudly stand in support of Law Enforcement Officers and the entire US law enforcement community.
This is a dangerous time for law enforcement officers in America.
All across the country, police officers and under siege.
Departments are being defunded.
The media amplifiers hateful anti-cop rhetoric.
Criminals have become martyrs.
The men and women in blue risk their lives every time they put on their badge. They run to danger when no one else will. They do it to protect and serve their fellow citizens, including those who demean their sacrifice.
I pray for their safety. But should they fall in the line of duty, I will be there to support to those loved ones they leave behind.
