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!
