An Officer was driving when he saw a woman crying in the rain. His instinct took over and he turned around to stop and ensure she was okay. He learned she wasn't and he took immediate action.
Through officer-initiated requests, Angels on Patrol moves families from crisis to stability by securing safety, providing emergent basic needs and connection to long-term community resources.
Angels on Patrol also supports officer-run Youth Enrichment leadership programs and activities.
Angels on Patrol’s requests for service are vetted and originate 100% from law enforcement officers—the only non-profit that operates in this manner.
Angels on Patrol has no wait list and NO red tape. Service to the officer and person in need is promptly responded to and delivered. Emergencies don't just happen between 8am-5pm, Monday through Friday, that is why AoP ensures officers have 24/7 support.
AoP does not have a list of services. Why? Because each situation officers encounter is unique. What is provided by AoP depends on what the officer encounters, and is needed by the community member.
A School Resource Officer formed a bond with a 12-year-old girl in a wheelchair. The young lady and her family were involved in a car crash that left her paralyzed from the waist down when she was six. The family was unable to provide her with physical therapy that may have offered her the opportunity to walk again.
One day, the officer noticed that she was too big for her wheelchair and when asked, was told it was the same one she was discharged from the hospital with. That officer placed a request to Angels on Patrol, and in partnership with K2 Adventures Foundation, provided her a brand new custom wheelchair! It was even in her favorite color of pink.
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 to meet the needs of law enforcement officers as they encounter people in crisis. Your support makes this possible.
