The Atlanta Police Foundation and Peachtree Presbyterian Church partnered to provide a $100,000 Life Insurance Policy for all sworn Atlanta Police officers. The insurance policy is one way the community is showing its support to the officers of the APD who Answer the Call and go to work and put themselves in harm’s way for our community each and every day.
The partnership to purchase the life insurance policy was established to honor the memory of APD RED DOG officer Mark Cross, who was killed in the line of duty by a drug suspect on April 23, 2005. Former Atlanta Police Foundation board member Scott Wilfong, Dave Wilkinson, President & CEO of the Atlanta Police Foundation, Taylor Glover, President of Turner Enterprises, and Dr. Vic Pentz of Peachtree Presbyterian, were instrumental in putting together this benefit to families of fallen officers.
Since established five years ago, thefunding for the insurance premium was provided by members of Peachtree Presbyterian Church and numerous other donors of the Atlanta community.
The $100,000 CHUBB Life Insurance Policy:
- Is a benefit to all sworn Atlanta police officers killed in the line of duty
