The LAFOP has received recent inquires about financial assistance for the effected members in Ferguson. The following is a caption from the Missouri Fraternal Order of Police Facebook Page:
"Due the numerous amount of inquiries regarding donations for the officers in Ferguson, we have recruited the guidance of our charitable foundation, the Shield of Hope.
The Louisiana State Chapter of C.O.P.S is hosting a fishing tournament in the Shreveport/ Bossier City on the Red River in March 2015. All proceeds raised will go to benefiting the ongoing programs that the Louisiana chapter provides for the surviving spouse, children, siblings and co-workers of the fallen officer.
If you are not familiar with the organization you can visit their website at www.la-cops.org.
I would like to encourage all local lodges to help support this event by participating and help to spread the word of the tournament. I have attached the even flier for the event to this email.
The organizer of the event, Harry Watson, is the father of Jeff Watson our fallen brother from St. Charles Parish. Harry can be reached at this email email@example.com.
At the 2014 Biennial Conference the Louisiana Fraternal Order of Police held two training sessions. One on 4th Amendment Updates taught by Orleans Criminal Court Judge Karen Herman and the second being updates in Domestic Violence taught by Legal Plan Attorney Raymond Burkart III. We thank both of these instructors for taking time to instructor these courses at the conference.
