Citizens For Cops provides immediate & direct financial assistance to the Families of Line Of Duty Death (LODD) Police Officers. All donations to Citizens For Cops are made completely transparent via the Donation Tracker’s website. Learn more at the Donation Tracker’s About Us page.
Police Officers put their lives on the line every day for American Citizens like us. When a Line Of Duty Death (LODD) occurs, families and loved ones are left behind with a huge loss as well as new financial burdens. Our goal is to provide immediate & direct financial assistance and timely, heart-felt prayer for the families who are suffering so greatly. We want them to know that US citizens care deeply about police and their loss, specifically. Join us. Together we can help to alleviate the burden felt by the families who find themselves in this terrible situation.
About The Charity
The charity is set up so that 100% of all donations go toward supporting the families of Line Of Duty Death (LODD) Police Officers. Donation Trackers covers any and all expenses that Citizens For Cops may have. This way, a full 100% of donations go toward the cause!
Once you make a donation, it is immediately logged in the Transparency Box. This is so you can immediately see your impact towards the cause and track it to its final destination.
Once the balance reaches a minimum of $10,000 it will be donated directly to the family of an LODD Police Officer that is in need of financial assistance. This too is then logged in the Transparency Box so that you can see exactly where your efforts went to!
Who Receives Our Financial Aid?
Person(s) must be survivors of an LODD Police Officer.
The donation balance must be at a minimum of $10,000.
The intention is to provide a reasonable impact and to help meet immediate financial needs shortly after a Line Of Duty Death occurs.
Assistance determination will be need-based. The goal is to help those in actual immediate need. Survivors that have stable income or money to immediately draw from may not receive the assistance.
Assistance determination will be non-discriminatory with regard to age, sex, sexual preference, race, ethnicity, creed or religion.
Our intention at Citizens For Cops is to promote prayer and awareness to our fellow citizens so that God will bless our charitable efforts together. Citizens For Cops supports the families of Police Officers who willingly walk into harm's way in order to protect us and our God-given liberties.
Every morning, before the business day begins, we pray for law enforcement, the rule of law, and civil discourse across our country. When news breaks of a Line of Duty Death (LODD), we pray for the family and loved ones. In addition to fundraising for those in need, prayer is a vital part of what we do here at Citizens For Cops.
Luke 18:1 [NASB]
Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart
Below are some bible verses that pertain directly to God's view on Policing and the Police. We thank God for these men and women who freely choose to serve among us.
John 15:13 [NASB]
Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.
And in the case of Police Officers, it's most often strangers.
Romans 13:1-8 [NASB] 1 Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. 3 For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; 4 For it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil. 5 Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also for conscience' sake. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for [rulers] are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing. 7 Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax [is due;] custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor. 8 Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled [the] law.
