The Atlanta Police Foundation and Peachtree Presbyterian Church partnered to provide a $100,000 Life Insurance Policy for all sworn Atlanta Police officers. The insurance policy is one way the community is showing its support for the officers of the APD who Answer the Call and put their lives on the line each and every day for our community.
The partnership to purchase the life insurance policy was established to honor the memory of APD RED DOG officer Mark Cross, who was killed in the line of duty by a drug suspect on April 23, 2005. Scott Wilfong, Former Atlanta Police Foundation board member, Dave Wilkinson, President & CEO of the Atlanta Police Foundation, Taylor Glover, President of Turner Enterprises, and Dr. Vic Pentz of Peachtree Presbyterian, were all instrumental in putting together this benefit to families of fallen officers.
Since its establishment five years ago, the funding for the insurance premium has been provided by members of Peachtree Presbyterian Church and numerous other donors of the Atlanta community.
The $100,000 Prudential Life Insurance Policy:
- Is a benefit to all sworn Atlanta police officers killed in the line of duty
- Offers occupational accidental death & dismemberment benefits
