Our purpose is to assist law enforcement officers that were injured in the line of duty or suffered from a career ending ailment. We operate solely on donations from citizens and businesses.
The Capital Area law Enforcement Foundation Inc. was founded in 2012 by Metropolitan Police Detective Joe Crespo, Travis Barton, and Officer Greg Alemian. After 9 years assisting the Washington, D.C. Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors in the annual golf tournament, a need for an organization to assist law enforcement officers that were injured in the line of duty or suffered from a career ending ailment was thought of. Though most law enforcement charitable organizations do a great job in assisting families of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, we must not forget those that have sacrificed their lives or have suffered a career ending injury or ailment. This foundation was created by law enforcement officers and we are committed to those that sacrifice their lives and need a helping hand.
The Capital Area law Enforcement Foundation Inc. operates solely on donations from citizens and businesses, and are always looking for community support. All of our board members are law enforcement officers and/or survivors that volunteer their time to this organization. The Capital Area Law Enforcement Foundation is a nonprofit organization under Section 501(c)(3) with the Internal Revenue Service. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent permitted by law.
On Feb. 5, 1997, at 3 am, Officer Brian T. Gibson, 27 was ambushed and shot to death while in full uniform sitting in his marked patrol car at a traffic light outside the IBEX Nightclub at Georgia and Missouri Avenues, NW. Within three minutes after the shots were fired, members of the Fourth District apprehended Marthell Nathaniel Dean, who had been escorted from the IBEX club by an off-duty officer just prior to the shooting. Dean was found guilty of First Degree Murder and is currently serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
Brian's family held this dinner in memory of him and in gratitude to all DC-area law enforcement. As they have become unable to manage such a large event now, we are working with Brian's family to continue this tradition.
