Police Charities UK is a single place to find dedicated police charities within the United Kingdom.
Charities have been established up and down the country to serve police officers in a number of ways, for instance those in need of rehabilitation if they have suffered injury or violence on duty. In addition charities also support families if an incident renders a police officer permanently or temporarily incapacitated.
In the case of death, there are charities to support the loved ones left behind. And memorial charities have been established to honour those who have died in service.
Over recent years, with deep budget cuts being keenly felt by police forces up and down the country, other charities have been formed, for example to fundraise for sniffer dogs, which are a vital part of forensic policing.
