What Is the Injured Police Officers Fund in Nevada?

March 16, 2021


Nevada’s Injured Police Officers Fund (IPOF) is a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to Police Officers and their families after a line of duty injury or death.

IPOF strives to reduce the financial burden caused by medical expenses, an officer’s inability to work, or the death of an officer killed in the line of duty. The organization helps settle expenses not covered by industrial insurance for severe line of duty injuries or death. Some of these expenses include child care expenses not normally incurred, compensation for damaged equipment, and other expenses based on the facts of the case.

The History of the Injured Police Officer Fund

The IPOF was established in October 1982 following the shooting of Officer James MacLaren during a traffic stop. While he survived his injuries, the incident forced him into medical retirement. Sheriff John Moran and his wife organized a nighttime event that served as IPOF’s first fundraiser. The money raised during this event was given to the MacLaren family and that’s how the idea of IPOF started.

Member Agencies of IPOF

After its conception in 1982, the IPOF represented North Las Vegas Police, Henderson Police, the Southern Region of Nevada Highway Patrol, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, and Boulder City Police. Later, the Mesquite Police, the City of Las Vegas Detention and Enforcement, Clark County School District Police, Clark County Park Police, and University of Nevada Las Vegas Police Department. To date, IPOF has 11 member agencies.

The IPOF is represented by Officers from each of the member agencies. The officers are appointed by their agency’s Chief of Police or Sheriff of Clark County, in the case of LVMPD Officers. The appointed officers volunteer their time to duties associated with IPOF.

IPOF Funding and Community Works

Every year, the Injured Police Officers Fund usually holds at least two major fundraisers: The annual IPOF Classic Car Show and the annual IPOF Golf Tournament. IPOF also holds several benefiting events such as the LVMPD K9 Trials, the Nevada Police and Fire Games, and The Thin Blue Line Hockey Tournament. The organization also works with several community non-profit organizations within Las Vegas, including friends of Metro K9.

I have not had the opportunity yet to thank you for always treating me with respect and kindness. Even though we have disagreed about elements of my injury and how it played out in 1994, you still treated me with respect and dignity. Therefore I just want to thank you for being so kind and respectful to me.
