Attention Members:

Yes, we are currently in the planning stages of a response to assist our brother and sister officers devastated by Hurricane Harvey in South Texas.

I will personally assure you that 100% of any money donated will go to affected law enforcement members and their families. In the meantime keep them in your thoughts and prayers, especially HERO Sgt. Steve Perez who went to work Tuesday telling his wife “we got work to do”.
