What Does The Homeland Security Federal Enforcement Foundation Do?
Earlier this year, at the formal ballroom inside the Sheraton Hotel in Times Square, the Federal Enforcement Homeland Security Foundation (FEHSF) recognized “Law & Order” producer Dick Wolf, NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller, and scores of FBI, DEA, and Secret Service agents. “Most of the guests were carrying concealed weapons,” joked pagesix.com writer Richard Johnson.
Although most Americans know the federal government provides assistance to families of servicemen and women who are killed or wounded in battle, many are less familiar with the formal support that is extended to families of wounded or deceased federal law enforcement agents–our greatest protectors.
The FEHSF serves federal agents, officers, and their families when they need it most. Below, I’ve outlined some of the great work that the FEHSF does.
The FEHSF provides financial support to families of agents and officers who are wounded and/or killed in the line of duty, or facing severe medical conditions.
To honor their parents’ sacrifice, the FEHSF offers college and education scholarships to children of Federal Law Enforcement Agents and Officers who are killed in the line of duty.
