POAT in Action

POAT was founded under the auspices of the Dade County Association of Chiefs of Police in 1989 as a support organization for the local, state, and federal law enforcement community of Miami-Dade County, Florida to assist officers and their families in times of need. The responsibilities of POAT are twofold. First, to provide financial assistance to officers disabled in the line of duty, suffering from chronic or terminal illness, or the victim of some other catastrophic circumstance. Second, POAT provides educational assistance to the spouses and children of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. To obtain more information on assistance, please click here.
