Whenever any law enforcement officers are wounded or killed in the line of duty the Injured Police Officers Fund steps in immediately to provide a wide range of support services for that officer's family. Sunday the IPOF held a car show fundraiser to help raise money for that fund.
The mission of the Injured Police Officers Fund is to help reduce the financial burden suffered by Police Officers and their families in the event of a line of duty injury or death by providing monetary assistance to these Officers and their families.
The Injured Police Officers Fund (IPOF) was formed in October of 1982 when LVMPD Motor Officer James MacLaren was shot in the head during a traffic stop. Fortunately, Officer MacLaren survived his injuries however; he was forced into medical retirement.
The IPOF held its first fund-raiser when Sheriff John Moran and his wife Goldie Moran hosted "A night out with the stars." All of the funds raised from this event were donated to the MacLaren family and the IPOF was born.
In 1982, the IPOF represented the Officers of LVMPD, Henderson, North Las Vegas, Boulder City and the Southern Region of Nevada Highway Patrol. In 1992 the IPOF added the City of Mesquite Police to our organization. In 1995, under the leadership of Sheriff Jerry Keller, the IPOF added the Officers of the City of Las Vegas Detention and Enforcement, University of Nevada Las Vegas Police, Clark County Park Police and Clark County School District Police.
The IPOF is comprised of sworn law enforcement officers from each of the member agencies. Each agency has one primary and one alternate representative. These officers volunteer their time and are appointed by the Chief of Police of their agency, or in the case of LVMPD Officers, the Sheriff of Clark County.
Hundreds turned out for a fundraiser at sunset park Sunday to show him and all officers in southern Nevada that they appreciate the risks these officers take every day on the job.
Just about every kind of car you could imagine was on display at Sunset Park Sunday, from classic American muscle cars to modern day supped up imports.
The IPOF helps dozens of injured officer's families every month by paying for missed days of work for spouses, uncovered medical expenses, even day care for the kids so that the spouses can focus on helping the injured officer recover.
This event will be finalized Feb. 20th ish and updated
