Who we serve
Every current contributing member of the Tucson Police Department and their immediate dependent family during a time of crisis.
This financial support program is designed to help both the sworn and non-sworn members of the department who are in crisis as a result of a catastrophic illness, injury, or accident. We serve members who have children suffering from on-going disabilities and need an additional helping hand.
Why we serve:
The Hearts of Gold Police Family Outreach program originated from the desire of fellow department members wanting to work together to help one another. The fact is that a crisis strikes a department member or their family every year. Now with the help of Hearts of Gold, we can quickly step up to help those in our department who suffer a catastrophic accident, illness or have a child who has an on-going disability issue.
What qualifies for outreach:

The Hearts of Gold Police Family Outreach Fund is an act of caring and compassion from all of our members to an affected member. As such, clear guidelines have been developed for a member in crisis.
Who is eligible:
The fund is available to assist in the following situations: A member or an immediate family member who has lost their life, members or immediate family who suffer from catastrophic illness, injury or other natural disaster or any member or immediate family who has an ongoing medical disability; congenital or otherwise.
