In August of 2019, the Board of FPPOA voted to establish a Benevolence Fund. This memorial fund is our way to honor Federal Probation and Pretrial Officers and to offer assistance to their families who suffer a loss of their loved one. The FPPOA Benevolence Fund was organized with the sole purpose of helping the families of sworn officers of U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services by providing financial relief in the event of a officer’s death. Due to the unforeseen expenses resulting from the untimely loss of a law enforcement loved one, the FPPOA Benevolence Fund was designed to help subsidize these expenses. It is our opinion that this financial assistance is the most needed way of helping the family members during the shocking first days following the death of an officer. Funds permitting, any death of a federal probation or pretrial officer is covered, and is not limited to line of duty deaths. Since the fund was established, four families have received this gift, thanks to all of your generosity.
In order to provide this benefit, the fund needs your help. We started this fund raising at the 2019 National Training Institute asking for donations from those attending the conference. No donation is too small. Thank you for your support.
