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 and supports the Trooper Teddy Program.  Trooper Teddy Bears ride with Troopers on patrol to provide comfort and relief to children throughout Virginia who experience traumatic events.  Contributions to this IRS 501 c 3 corporation may be tax deductible.

Support the General Fund

Contributions to this fund support work in the General Assembly to enhance highway safety and to promote a safer Virginia and communities  for our citizens, support lobbying efforts to imrove working conditions, compensation and benefits for the men and women of the Virginia State Police, to provide scholarship programs for both our members and their children, to provide annual conferences for our members, to provide support to members' families following the loss of a member or family member, and more.
