A nonprofit organization

"What I would tell an officer who is struggling with alcohol, substance abuse, suicidal thoughts, perhaps PTSI/PTSD is that there is help out there, it's available. It's not the end of the world. We have helped others that are fully recovered and, on the road, to bringing their lives back to normalcy. They can do it to. All they need to do is ask."

Mike Violette
Fraternal Order of Police


Promote a greater understanding and awareness by the public on issues affecting the law enforcement profession and to foster community-wide support for law enforcement by providing supplemental resources for traumatically injured officers and their families, giving needed financial assistance to survivors of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, and building meaningful and positive officer-community partnerships.

Background Statement

The Colorado Police Officers Foundation is the foundation for the Colorado Fraternal Order of Police and was originally founded in 1997 as the Colorado Fraternal Order of Police Public Safety Awareness Foundation. In 2010 the current name was adopted as as "DBA" to be more aligned with foundation's focus and mission of providing financial assistance to the families of fallen officers, training assistance for officers, mental health and wellness counseling, and providing youth scholarships and supporting youth programs.
