Imagine if your child had seizures and three ambulance rides in one week. Prolonged hospital stays. Testing several times a month. The DPS Troopers Foundation was honored to be able to provide some financial relief to a trooper facing this serious family medical emergency. With your help we can provide even more funding to help Texas troopers and their families in need as well as educational opportunities for students and leadership and training opportunities for troopers across the state.

About DPSOA and the DPS Troopers Foundation

For more than 40 years, the Texas Department of Public Safety Officers Association (DPSOA) has been working to advocate on behalf of Troopers, Agents, Rangers, Officers, Communications Personnel and Forensic Scientists of the Texas Department of Public Safety. DPSOA is the largest organization representing commissioned law enforcement officers in Texas and includes more than 3300 men and women who daily pledge their lives to protect Texans across the state.

DPSOA is a not-for-profit organization which is funded primarily through member dues and revenue generated by our annual conference. In 2010 the organization launched the Texas DPS Troopers Foundation (DPSTF) to further support DPS commissioned officers, communication personnel, and forensic scientists by providing financial assistance in times of emergency need, survivor benefits at death, education and training programs, and scholarships for qualifying family members. The DPSTF also supports at-risk youth programs in the community. DPSTF depends on public donations in order to serve its mission.
