Not every 911 call requires an arrest, most times it requires an intervention. Officers want to help beyond their official capacity and often reach into their own pocket to do so. Angels on Patrol was founded to meet this critical need. Officers are Angels on Patrol, they need us as much as we need them!!
TO PROVIDE OFFICER-INITIATED SUPPORT TO COMMUNITY MEMBERS IN TIMES OF CRISIS.
AoP ANSWERS DIRECT REQUESTS FROM OFFICERS AS THEY ASSIST ABOVE & BEYOND THE CALL DURING THEIR ON-DUTY HOURS.
Angels on Patrol enables officers to go beyond the call of duty to ensure a family, individual, or child is safe and connected to resources.
At-risk youth are given the opportunity to a brighter future through officer-run youth enrichment programming and support.
Our vision is to support law enforcement efforts by enhancing quality of life for the community.
Angels on Patrol's goal is to enhance the public's perception of law enforcement. This is naturally accomplished each time an officer submits a request for assistance.
At the most critical time, basic emergent needs are supplied along with the connection to long-term resources designed to encourage self-sustainability and empowerment.
Angels on Patrol provides an immediate connection to solutions and services through officer-initiated requests.
“I created AoP so that officers would have an immediate resource to help those that they meet in the course of their duty. People are able to be helped all because an officer had the heart to reach out.”
- Jacqui MacConnell, Angels on Patrol Founder
A police officer was working at a methadone clinic when he saw an elderly woman with a baby attached to her walker. He approached her and asked if she needed help. She informed him that the baby is her great niece and she took the baby in as both parents are on drugs, and the baby was born addicted.
The police officer placed a request into Angels on Patrol as she had no baby items. AoP bought a stroller, formula, clothing and other miscellaneous items, along with connecting her with DES so she could apply for baby formula and food assistance. The great aunt is disabled and was just getting by on her social security income but said she could not let the baby go into the system.
With your support we are able to respond daily to officer requests. As the need grows, Angels on Patrol’s vision is to continue expanding throughout the nation to meet the needs of law enforcement officers as they encounter people in crisis. Your support makes this possible.
