Family Fund for Paralyzed and Disabled Officers

John Kucan

National Outreach Chairman

As a permanently disabled police officer, I know all too well the feeling of being forgotten by the public and even some fellow officers. Fortunately, my wife and I heard about the NACOP Family Fund, which gave us the help we needed to start putting the pieces of our shattered lives back together and provide for our two daughters.

As the National Outreach Chairman for the Family Fund for Paralyzed & Disabled Police officers I would like to thank you for taking the time to learn about our programs. If you know of a paralyzed, disabled or injured police officer in your area who could use our help, please contact us right away.

Thank you,

Trooper John Kucan (Ret.) National Outreach Chairman


Making a Difference

The purpose of the Family Fund for Paralyzed and Disabled Officers is:


We provide recognition to these officers by awarding them the Police Purple Heart Medal and Certificate acknowledging the sacrifice they made in the line of duty. Continued recognition is achieved through support and assistance.


Helping officers help themselves: The officers are assisted in regaining productive lives through either college or vocational scholarships or with financial assistance for medical expenses incurred by their injuries.


Children of these officers are supported with programs such as college scholarships, summer camp grants as well as Christmas & birthday gifts. Parents and spouses feel support through the Mother's and Father's Day program.
