Glock presents $500,000 in donations.
Glock Inc. has made a $400,000 donation to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) in support of the development of the National Law Enforcement Museum. Additionally, Glock has given $50,000 to the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), as well as $50,000 to the Young Marines Association.
Last year, Glock committed to giving NLEOMF $2 million over five years. This most recent gift is the second installment of that plan.
"The National Law Enforcement Museum will honor the more than 900,000 sworn law enforcement officers serving our country, and also memorialize the many officers who have given their life in the line of duty," said Josh Dorsey, Glock vice president.
Glock's donation to C.O.P.S. marks the sixth consecutive year Glock has supported the organization, bringing its total contributions to $300,000. C.O.P.S. provides resources--scholarships, camps for children and counseling--to the families and fellow officers of those who are killed in the line of duty.
"Glock recognizes (the L.E. community's) valiant dedication and is proud to support police officers and their loved ones," said Bob Radecki, Glock national sales manager.
Glock presented its donation to the Young Marines at the Association of the United States Army annual meeting and exposition in Washington, D.C. The Young Marines promotes the mental, moral and physical development of its members.
