Police Memorial Day

AFP&CC has served over 9,000,000 Americans with tips on self protection, home security, vehicle safety, rape prevention and more while continuing to assist family survivors. These programs are supported through the generosity of over 150,000 donors and members nationwide. The American Federation of Police and Concerned Citizens (AFP&CC) was incorporated in 1978 to serve the rank and file police officer. Over the years, the vision for AFP&CC has grown to include crime prevention, public safety, police family survivor programs and the publication, "Police Family News". As the program focus has grown, so has support from the public.



Throughout the year there are various projects that provide opportunities for volunteers. Thousands of hours have been given by individuals and groups throughout the United States to help families who have lost a loved one in the line of duty as well as to educate families about safety and crime prevention issues.

Volunteers commonly help with the following:

Police Memorial Day
Family Fun Day
Toy Drives
Gift Wrapping
Letters of Condolence
