On March 28, 2019, The Federal Trade Commission reported on the operations of Disabled Police and Sheriff's Foundation, a former charity that has recently dissolved, in an article titled, "FTC, States Continue Fight against Sham Charities; Shut Down Operations That Falsely Claimed to Help Disabled Police Officers and Veterans." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see The Federal Trade Commission article.

  • On June 12, 2019, The St. Louis Record published an article titled, "AG announces disbursement of sham Disabled Police and Sheriffs Foundation cash, but fraction of total raised." For more information, please see The St. Louis Record article.

The concerns raised about organizational legitimacy and/or federal tax law compliance are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory. We have published this advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the authors of sources used for the reported information, and not those of Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through such external sources and websites. For more information on how or when we decide to publish a CN Advisory, please review our methodology.
