Glock to Donate $70,000 at IACP

October 12, 2010  | 

Glock, Inc. will make two donations during the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference in Orlando, Fla., from Oct. 23-27, the company announced.

A donation of $50,000 will be presented to the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) Charity, and $20,000 to Drug Enforcement Administration Survivors Benefit Fund (DEA SBF).

"Glock has a long history of supporting the individuals and families of those who go in harm's way," according to Gary Fletcher, Glock's vice president. "We welcome the opportunity to participate in organizations focused on supporting those who have fallen while protecting us and our families. We are proud to contribute to these two great organizations."

Fletcher will present both donations at a ceremony that will take place at Glock's Booth #1607 at 11 a.m. on Oct. 25 (Monday). Representatives of C.O.P.S. include Suzie Sawyer, executive director; Jennifer Thacker, director of national outreach; and Linda Gregory, national president. Representing the DEA SBF will be Richard Crock, supervisory special agent of the DEA.

This is the fourth consecutive year Glock has donated to the C.O.P.S. organization for a total of $200,000. C.O.P.S. is dedicated to supporting friends and families of law enforcement officers dealing with the grief caused after the loss of an officer. The nonprofit organization supports families with scholarships, child and teen camps, counseling and programs designed for spouses and parents, as well as support for the department in which the fallen officer served.

This will mark the first significant donation to the DEA SBF by Glock. The DEA SBF is a nonprofit charitable organization that supports the surviving family members of the U.S. Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Administration employees and deputized task force officers killed in the line of duty.

In 2010, Glock will donate more than $550,000 to a variety of nonprofit causes across the country.
