How You Can
The Police Officer Assistance Trust (P.O.A.T.) was founded under the auspices of the Miami-Dade County Association of Chiefs of Police in 1989 as a support organization for the law enforcement community and their families in times of need. This need is most often financial, but extends to other areas as well. POAT offers assistance to all sworn officers in Miami-Dade County from federal, state, county, and municipal agencies.
POAT has provided over 800 officers with more than $6 million in assistance. Your contribution makes these efforts possible!
The Police Officer Assistance Trust is a qualified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Please consult your tax advisor regarding specific questions about your deductions.
