Triple 9 Fund *999* is a program set up to provide financial assistance to the families of fallen or seriously injured law enforcement employees throughout the state of Arizona. The primary goal of the *999* Fund is to keep our best officers on the job, focused on protecting the community and fighting crime. Insurance does not always cover medical expenses for injury, especially if an officer is injured while off duty. Officers can find themselves struggling with big medical bills and the difficulty of providing for their families while they are off the job, recuperating. Making matters worse, there are few programs which offer aid in a case not involving death.
In Kind and Volunteers!
Football Community Policing Program – AZLEOS Code 3 Sports
Who wants to play football, be part of a community policing program that can have a lifelong impact and raise money for charity programs (Shop with a Cop and Triple 999 Officer Needs Assistance programs)?
In conjunction with Maricopa Co. Community Colleges District PD, Salt River PD and Arizona Law Enforcement Outreach & Support (AZLEOS), we are launching our first foray into AZLEOS Code 3 Sports.
The first sport for the program is going to be flag football (8-man with blocking.) The goal will be to have teams of First Responders and teams of underserved juveniles working with football programs at the valleys colleges/universities. The two teams will practice together and share the same coaches. The coaches will be college/high school coaches and volunteer college student athletes. After a practice schedule that will allow for sufficient bonding and mentorship opportunities between the First Responders, kids and student athletes, the teams will play the corresponding (adult v adult/kid v kid) team from the other locations. The season will culminate in a championship game to be played in a college stadium.
This year we are starting out with just two teams. One will be based at Salt River/SCC and organized by the Salt River PD. They will be working with kids from Salt River High School. The contact there is Edward Alameda Edward.Alameda@srpmic-nsn.gov.
The other team will be in Mesa at MCC and will be organized by Maricopa Co. Community Colleges PD and AZDPS. The contacts there are Jim Hill firstname.lastname@example.org and Chris Scott email@example.com. We anticipate that this team will be working with kids from Westwood and/or Dobson High Schools.
If you are interested in playing please email as soon as possible with which team you would like to participate.
*Mesa practices will start shortly. We will be holding them on Sunday mornings in the MCC stadium.
We are anticipating holding our charity championship game in mid to late May and it will be a night game.
*Eligibility for the First Responder team will be limited to active duty/retired Law Enforcement (civilian or sworn), full time EMS/Fire (sworn/civilian), and active duty/retired military. Based on space available we may open up participation to include; spouse, offspring and sibling in case a team also wants to compete in the Police/Fire Games.
Dear Friends, Colleagues and Brothers/Sisters in Blue,
As many of you have heard, Officer Dave Pubins was the victim of a very serious accident. While at home, off-duty, he was riding his bicycle with his wife, when he was struck from behind by a motorist. Dave suffered severe injuries which included, a traumatic head injury, broken clavicle, a crushed ankle and many other lacerations an…d contusions.
Immediately after the accident Dave was put into a medically induced coma. He has since been brought out of the coma and is breathing on his own. Recently he was transferred from ICU to a rehabilitation center to continue his road to recovery.
The true extent of Dave’s injuries will not be known for quite some time. This means that Dave, who recently retired from Scottsdale PD and began working as a Police Officer for the Maricopa County Community Colleges Department of Public Safety, will be off work for an extended period of time.
Unfortunately, because Dave is a fairly new employee he has a very limited amount of medical leave accrued. In fact, as of this letter, it has probably all been used. This has left his family in a tight spot.
In consultation with Dave’s family, we are asking for donations to help pay for medical and living expenses while Dave heals.
To make a donation that will go to assisting Dave’s family in their time of need please make out a check to “Arizona LEOS” (Arizona Law Enforcement Outreach & Support is a 501c3.) This donation is to our Triple “999” program for circumstances where law enforcement need immediate help and support.
Checks can be dropped off/sent interoffice at any Maricopa County Community Colleges Department of Public Safety office in the District, Attention Officer Jim Hill
Checks can be dropped off/sent interoffice to Scottsdale PD HQ, Attention the PIO Office
Checks can be mailed directly to Arizona LEOS at 8414 E. Vista Dr., 85250.
Please include your email address so that you can be sent a receipt without us incurring any mailing costs.
Thank you very much for your assistance. If you have any questions, please call Cindy Hill at 480-695-2494 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I thank you and please continue your prayers for our friend.
Officer Jim Hill
