The Safe Cop” program is nationally renowned for posting up to a $10,000 rewards for public information that results in the arrest and conviction of anyone who shoots a member law enforcement officer, anywhere in the United States.
The “Safe Cop” criteria for reward payment mandates a conviction for the armed assault of a law enforcement officer and a prosecutor's certification that the public information was instrumental in the arrest and conviction of the defendant. The Safe Cop program was established in 1995 and has been instrumental in the arrest of several suspects involved in police related shootings.
Additional “Safe Cop” Program Services:
- • Critical medical care and counseling to disabled law enforcement personnel worldwide.
- • The NPDF will periodically establish a medical fund for the disabled officer or an immediate family member when they are financially unable to pay for medical treatment or have outstanding medical debt.
- • It should be noted, the “Safe Cop” was credited for providing free grief counseling, emergency financial assistance, meals, lodging and supplies for many of the police and first responder victims of the September 11th terrorist attack.
- • In the memory of the police officials killed on September 11th, the NPDF commissioned a world renowned sculptor who created the “September 11th Police Memorial”, which is located in Orange County, New York
