SPOG is a nonprofit corporation (501 c5) that receives no funding from tax dollars. We strive to provide assistance to officers, their families, and community members that need a helping hand. Over the years, we have been able to make funds available to families facing life threatening illnesses, sponsor children’s athletic leagues, and assist the surrounding community with charitable giving. Most importantly, we work hard to protect the benefits, working conditions, training, and equipment of our members so they can continue to work hard to protect all of us.
Help the Officer – This fund assists public safety officers and their families who are in critical need of assistance due to illness, accident, death, or unforeseen catastrophic emergencies.
Fallen Officer – This fund allows SPOG to provide emergency financial assistance to SPD families who must handle unexpected expenses in the event of an officer’s death.
Ken Saucier Scholarship – The Ken Saucier Scholarship fund was formed in honor of late SPOG President Ken Saucier who tragically passed away in 2004. This scholarship is awarded to dependents of active SPOG members who stand out as exceptional scholars and leaders in their communities. The applications are available in April of each year.
Youth Athletic Fund – SPOG supports youth athletics through the availability of scholarship grants available to each SPOG member for their dependents.
