Community Support

Our chapter regularly contributes to programs at the Douglas County Sheriff's Department, the agency responsible for all local law enforcement in the Carson Valley area. For example, we have donated money for the Sheriff's Canine Program, the Sheriff's Chaplaincy Program to help fund uniforms for their Chaplains, the Sheriff's Citizen's Patrol Program, and the Sheriff's Search and Rescue Program. These programs are either marginally supported or not funded at all by the county, but exist based on contributions from the community. A list of donations made to the community since 1991 is shown below.

Since 2004, our chapter has awarded a Service Recognition Award each quarter to an outstanding area peace officer or firefighter, as nominated by the agency, for "dedicated and sustained professional service." This program has been very successful and is expected to continue.

Our chapter conducts a "Pot of Gold" raffle at each of our ten dinner meetings throughout the year (every month except July and December). This enables us to make an annual donation or donations to projects approved by the membership. Typically, these projects are public safety related, and are either unfunded or under funded by the appropriate level of government.
