Western Pennsylvania Police Benevolent Foundation

It is the purpose of the Western Pennsylvania Police Benevolent Foundation to provide assistance to injured police officers in need. This assistance may be in the form of information about available resources or monetary aid to help ease the financial burden in a time of crisis.

Please join the WPPBF in supporting these coming events. For more details on any event, visit our Coming Events page.


 NOTE: The event starts at 6:00 PM (not 7:00 PM as previously stated).

“A Night in Blue” is open to all — law enforcement and non-law enforcement / anyone wishing to join us for the evening. During this event, we pay tribute to the brothers and sisters who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to others. Additionally, we recognize acts of valor and bravery and the sacrifices made by our families supporting us and what we do. We hope you’ll join us for this night of great food and fantastic company as we salute our officers from all over Western Pennsylvania.
