The Police Officer Assistance Trust (POAT) was formed in 1989 as a support organization for the law enforcement community of Miami-Dade County, Florida. Our mission is to provide assistance to officers and their families in times of hardship, personal crisis or critical need.
Since its inception, POAT has helped law enforcement families through catastrophic circumstances brought about by accident, illness or injury. Assistance is primarily financial, but has extended to other support as well such as information, referrals and counseling. In addition, POAT provides educational assistance, holiday remembrances to the children of slain officers and sponsors the annual Police Memorial Ceremony.
