    S.A.F.E. Mission Statement

    To provide the comfort of financial support for the surviving spouses and dependents or, in their absence, the parents of sworn law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency services personnel who lose their life in the performance of their duties. The employing agency, at the time of death of said public safety officers, must be headquartered within the geographic boundaries of the SAFE program as defined in the current by-laws.

    SAFE currently fulfills its mission by providing an immediate lump sum payment to the nearest surviving family member(s) of full time and volunteer law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency services personnel killed in the line of duty in the stated geographic area. Additional monetary benefits are available for deaths occurring "while on duty" but not "in the line of duty", as well as benefits for certain "catastrophic injuries", and family holiday contributions. In fulfilling its mission, SAFE receives and invests funds and endeavors to inform and educate the public on issues related to the sacrifices made by those involved in public safety and their families. This organization is not intended to benefit survivors of federal or state agencies, many of whom receive benefits through other programs.
