The Benefits of Community Engagement for Police Support Organizations
Community engagement involves building relationships between organizations and the people they serve to foster trust, create partnerships, and promote positive change. As a non-profit organization dedicated to providing support and assistance to the families of fallen law enforcement officers, the Texas Fallen Officer Foundation recognizes the importance of community engagement in achieving our mission.
