The Operation Thank an Officer College Scholarship is offered to college students who are children of currently serving or retired law enforcement officials and college students who are pursuing a degree in the law enforcement field. Students currently enrolled in an institute of higher education who have a parent presently serving in law enforcement, a retired law enforcement official, or a law enforcement official who has passed away are eligible to apply.
Operation Thank an Officer launched scholarships after our President Liz heard about the dwindling recruitment numbers within law enforcement agencies. After speaking with members of the community and the Operation Thank an Officer board, we decided to launch a scholarship program to help students entering the law enforcement field. We’ve gifted over $40,000 in scholarship money.
