Every day the men and women of the New Orleans Police Department put their own lives on the line to protect the safety of others. The Tragedy Fund is set aside for NOPD employees and their families when an officer experiences a loss of life or significant injury. Distribution is made at the discretion of the Tragedy Fund Board. All employees of the department are eligible to be members of the Tragedy Fund. Since 2003 over $315,000 has been paid out to seriously injured officers or their families.

If you are a police officer and you would like to find out more about the tragedy fund, please contact Annette Boden at annette@nopjf.org or by phone at 504-558-9944.
