Public Safety: Everyone’s Responsibility
In the wake of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, public safety has taken on new dimensions. Even in the face of growing threats and challenges, police and fire professionals continue to respond with characteristic heroism and selflessness. Unfortunately, some lose their life in the line of duty.
It’s impossible to fill the void they leave in society and in their families, but by supporting The BackStoppers, you can express your appreciation in a tangible way for a life given on behalf of others. By doing so, you can help those they loved the most continue their legacy of dedication to public safety.
A Safety Net with No Strings Attached
Started in 1959, The BackStoppers provides needed support and financial assistance to the spouses and children of all local and county police officers, firefighters, publicly-funded paramedics and EMTs and volunteer fire protection units, who have lost their lives performing their duty. Deaths from natural causes, illnesses or injuries are outside the organization’s scope. The BackStoppers provides assistance to counties served by Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop C in Missouri and Illinois State Police District 11 in Illinois and Cape Girardeau County in Missouri. The BackStoppers, Inc., is a non-profit association of civic-minded men and women in the St. Louis area and neighboring counties in Missouri and Illinois.
