The mission of the Injured Police Officers Fund is to help reduce the financial burden suffered by Police Officers and their families in the event of a line of duty injury or death by providing monetary assistance to these Officers and their families. The Injured Police Officers Fund (IPOF) was formed in October of 1982 when LVMPD Motor Officer James MacLaren was shot in the head during a traffic stop. Fortunately, Officer MacLaren survived his injuries however; he was forced into medical retirement.
