Law Enforcement Charitable Foundation, Inc. Profile
Protecting the bond that exists between community and local law enforcement through education, programs, and briefings. Providing charitable support for families of police officers killed in the line of duty, and grants to law enforcement agencies for protective equipment, training, and memorials.
Help Us Support Law Enforcement and Their Families
The purpose of LECF is to support law enforcement offices, police officers and families of officers killed in the line of duty. For police officers we provide grants for body armor and K-9 units, education and our intelligence brief. For families of slain officers we provide education grants and other funds. But we can't do it without your help. Please support us today.
Founded in 2016, the foundation saw a need to help our heroes in blue. Men and women who wear a law enforcement uniform earn respect from the communities they serve by performing their duties to the best of their abilities. They place their lives on the line every day while we go about our business of providing better lives for our families. In the United States, our local police have a long and dignified history of protecting the communities they serve, and we intend to preserve this approach to law enforcement, so our police can continue to stand in the gap between those who would harm us and the free society we all long to safeguard.
What makes us different from other foundations?
Plenty of other great police charities and foundations exist, yet we focus on an educational need that will help to ensure the independence that law enforcement needs to best serve and be accountable to its local communities.
What is LECF?
The Law Enforcement Charitable Foundation began based on ideas from James F. Fitzgerald, a former Newark Police detective. His experience in law enforcement as well as his decades of work to help preserve the American system of government allows the foundation to have solid roots in identifying the educational and support tools needed to accomplish our mission, strive to our vision, and meet the needs of law enforcement.
