Established in 1972, the LAPMF supports all of the "LAPD Family" and the families of those who protect our community. We are here to minimize the financial burden often placed on Department employees who experience catastrophic circumstances and the families of officers killed in the line of duty.
The LAPMF has launched a campaign to increase Department-wide participation in the their automatic payroll deduction program, and to boost awareness of the their many philanthropic acts. The Memorial Foundation has set a goal of doubling automatic payroll deductions by May 2016, and increase annual deductions by $360,000 in 2016.
Is your college-bound child serious about higher education? If so, encourage them to participate in the Los Angeles Police Memorial Foundation's Merit-Based Scholarship program. The future rests upon the shoulders of our youth. Let the Memorial Foundation be part of that future.
Crime fighting has taken its toll. Since the first recorded police death in 1791, there have been over 20K law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. Currently, there are 20,538 names engraved on the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
