The Blue Alert Foundation will be participating in this year's
"GivingChallenge2015" where Donors from around the Suncoast and beyond will help to raise funds to continue the mission of the Blue Alert Foundation in
Helping Families of Fallen Law Enforcement Officer killed in the line of duty.
This year's Challenge has a Great Benefit for us, the Patterson
Foundation is going to match "Dollar for Dollar" from donations of $25.00 to
$250.00 per new donor. This matching benefit will help the Blue Alert Foundation
so we can help more Families of the Fallen and get more Bulletproof Vests for
With everything going on right now in the Country, we must show
Law Enforcement and their families, we care and we "Got Their Back"
This year, Blue Alert Donated Five Vests throughout the State to Law Enforcement Agencies that needed Vests for their K9s. And now Blue Alert wants to Vest the Newest K9 of the New Port Richey Police Dept., "K9 - Charlie K", named after fallen Tarpon Springs Officer, Charles Kondek, killed last year on Dec. 21, 2014. The Foundation really wants to get this Vest Purchased A.S.A.P. to protect "Charlie K"
The Blue Alert Foundation also runs the National Blue Alert System (Leo
Alert Plan) since May of 2008 right here in Florida. The System helps speed
the apprehension of violent criminals who have injured or killed police
officers or who have made an imminent or credible threat to cause serious
injury or death of a law enforcement officers. The Founder, Tom Berry, has
gone state to state to get others to join-in. 24 States have Signed-up for the System. Also we have been working with Congress to get the System Federalized, which happened this last May 19th, 2015 when, President Obama Signed S.665, the Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu National Blue Alert Act. With the Law Signed, we now have a Uniformed Communications system in place so all States know what is going on with a Called Blue Alert.
