The Highland Village Police Department nearly doubled its fundraising goal with its annual TXFallenPD Tribute Event in October.
At Wednesday’s City Council meeting, HVPD Chief Doug Reim presented a donation check for $58,573.76 to a representative from the Texas Police Chiefs Association Foundation. The fundraising goal for the event, which was held on Oct. 20, was $30,000.
The eleventh year of the event, which raises money for the families of police officers killed in the line of duty in Texas, was the biggest one yet for the city.
“While it is our desire to raise funds for the families of the fallen, it is our goal to honor the lives of the officers who are no longer with us,” said Chief Doug Reim. “We would not be able to hold this event without the support of our sponsors, City Council, City staff and the community.”
Another big shout-out to our community! At Tuesday's Council meeting we presented the donation check from the TXFallenPD Tribute Event to a rep from the Texas Police Chiefs Association's Foundation. This year's goal was $30,000. Thanks to our sponsors, our community and everyone who helped us with this event we nearly doubled our goal with a donation of $58,573.76! #TXFallenPD Highland Village Police Department
