The Fallen Officer Fund

The Colorado Springs Police Protective Association supports its members, officers of the CSPD, in their time of need through our Fallen Officer Fund. This fund is used to assist officers who have been catastrophically injured or killed in the line of duty. We are always working to increase this account through donations and fundraising events, most specifically the Annual Fallen Officer Memorial Golf Tournament held in the summer and the Casino Game Night held during the Annual Christmas Holiday Gala.

As a 501(c)(5) non-profit, the CSPPA is happy to accept donations from individuals and businesses who would like to support this worthy cause. 100% of your donation goes directly to the assistance of officers in need; there is no administrative costs associated with this fund. Any donation, large or small, will be put to good use to assist our officers and their families in their time of desperate need.

Additionally, for those who are considering a worthwhile cause to include in your will, please consider the CSPPA Fallen Officer Fund for this purpose.

“As our Fallen Heroes were there for us, this is but a small way for us to give back to their families during these heartbreaking times.”
—Det. Jeff Jensen (brother of Det. Jared Jensen EOW 2/22/06)

Thank you for considering the support of those who spend their lives working to protect us and their community!
