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.
A total of 1,466 law enforcement officers died in the line of duty during the past 10 years, an average of one death every 60 hours or 146 per year. There were 117 law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty in 2014.
