Caring for Cops Campaign
(Launched April, 2017)
The American Police Chaplains Association has launched a major fundraising campaign to raise $500,000 by the year 2022 to assist our police officers all throughout the USA! Never in our history have our police been more under fire (through word and literally) than now. A 56% increase in officers killed by gunfire in 2016 over the previous year. Of those, 21 were killed in ambush slayings, a 163 % increase over the last year!
Now is the time for the American people to stand up for the rule-of-law, which has kept us free for 241 years and stand behind our police who protect and serve us every day! Our mission is to “add value to law enforcement” and we do it through a number of ways: provide chaplain support by riding in patrol cars as an officer’s second partner; do Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISM) for all officers who have just experienced a traumatic event serving our people; grief counseling when a death has occurred—be it officer or civilian victim; provide counseling for cops and their families—especially their spouses; assistance for police families going through stress through resources including personal one-on-one help and the FREE distribution of a unique New Testament called “The Peacemakers” designed explicitly for cops and their jobs daily. (Presently, over 150,000 cops now carry this in their patrol bag!) We provide materials on being a good father/mother; resources for kids of cops; family events of fun for the police; movies; books; leadership training for police work and the continual support for their entire agency.
Also of most importance is Character First training; cop spouse support and support for the police family who faces challenges no other American family even understands. We do this with small groups, seminars and general training. Now, how can you help us? By GIVING!
APCA is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization organized under the Laws of the State of Michigan and also a federally exempt 501 ( C ) 3.
