TASER International, Inc. has donated $300,000 to the International Association of Chiefs of Police Foundation's fallen officer fund, the company announced Sunday.
The IACP Foundation will assume day-to-day management of the former TASER Foundation funds, including disbursement of grants to impacted families. The alliance is prompted by the organizations' shared mission of supporting the law enforcement community and IACP's deep global experience in foundation management, TASER announced.
TASER International, Inc. established the TASER Foundation for Fallen Officers in November 2004 to honor the service and sacrifice of local and federal law enforcement officers in the United States and Canada lost in the line of duty by providing financial support to their families.
The initial endowment of $1 million came from TASER International, Inc. and the direct contributions of TASER International employees. To date, the TASER Foundation has awarded more than $3 million to more than 1,000 families of fallen law enforcement officers in the United States and Canada.
