Angels on Patrol's mission is to provide Youth Enrichment and police officer initiated support to community members in times of crisis. Police officers are changing lives, one family at a time; and AoP is proud to assist as they help stabilize children and families in crisis and support life changing police officer ran youth enrichment programs!
AoP was founded in 2009, by Phoenix Police Lt. MacConnell, as a direct resource for police officers as they come upon horrific scenes during their duty hours.
