The Car Club Council of Hampton Roads
Presents The “Adopt-A-Cop” Program
What is the Adopt-A-Cop program? Adopt-A-Cop, or AAC, is a public service program designed to provide assistance to police officers, deputy sheriffs, correctional officers and their families when serious injury or loss of life in the public service occurs.
Who is eligible to receive assistance? Officers or Deputies of law enforcement agencies on the southside are included in this program.
What types of assistance does Adopt-A-Cop provide? Service may be as simple as encouraging cards and letters from the public to wish the officers a speedy recovery. When specific needs arise for officers or families monetary donations may be made to provide assistance.
How does the program operate? Each law enforcement agency has established a contact person in the agency to handle communications. When the agency determines an officer or deputy is in need the agency contact will refer the relevant information to the Car Club Council of Hampton Roads- www.carclubcouncil.info. The council will then determine how best to support the officer and/or family, and begin to work closely with the agency to deliver the assistance.
How is Adopt-A-Cop funded? Donations to AAC are accepted from the general public and businesses who wish to serve as sponsors for the program. Additionally, AAC decals are available for a small donation. When placed on your vehicle the decal is visible proof of your support for the daily efforts of the law enforcement community and the services provided to our communities.
I’d like to have more information about AAC or would like to make a donation. Is that possible? Certainly, contact Captain Dave Arnold, program coordinator, at (757) 618-6646, or by E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or Dee Nienstedt, pres. (757) 456-2211, or e-mail at email@example.com
