Our primary focus is to help members with additional benefits, safety legislation and emergency relief when needed – but the scope of giving has widened – to include the Department of State Police in general, school and community programs across the Commonwealth.

Support Law Enforcement

As a citizen, you have the opportunity to support law enforcement officers who work in difficult and dangerous situations everyday to protect and to make your community a safer place for you and your children to live and to work.  Show your support by becoming a supporter of the Virginia State Police Association Emergency Relief Fund, Scholarship Fund or General Fund.

Emergency Relief Fund

Contributions to the Emergency Relief Fund help provide emergency relief to members of the Department of State Police and other law enforcement officers and their families who experience a personal crisis and have nowhere else to turn.  Contributions to this fund may be tax deductible.

Support the General Fund

Contributions to this fund support the Trooper Teddy Bears program, scholarships to members’ children, lobbying efforts towards creating a safer environment for our citizens, helps fund our war on drugs and alcohol in our schools, and more.
