The VSPA was founded in 1974 and is a non-governmental, private non-profit corporation comprised of active and retired members of the Department of State Police. We not only provide services to our membership and other law enforcement officers, we:
- Provide Trooper Teddy Bears to our troopers so they may comfort a traumatized child.
- Support drug and alcohol prevention programs in our schools, and other child-focused charities across our Commonwealth.
- Lobby for legislative changes, which promote safety for our children and people like you.
The Virginia State Police Association general fund Contributions to this fund help the Association operate. This fund provides Trooper Teddy Bears to troopers, scholarships to members’ children, lobbying efforts which are directed towards creating a safer environment for our citizens, helps fund our war on drugs and alcohol in our schools, and more. Donations to the general fund are not tax deductible.
