No call is ever routine in the life of an officer whether on patrol, on horseback or in a jail or prison house. Before every work shift, they say goodbye to their loved ones never knowing if it will be their last kiss, hug, words or goodbye. They put all this on the line for the lives of perfect strangers they have yet to meet.

The code 10-78 is used by many departments to mean “officer needs assistance” for perhaps a traffic stop, an arrest, or – most dreaded – officer down. 10-78 Utah Foundation is a nonprofit organization that raises funds for law enforcement members injured in the line of duty from any agency including but not limited to officers, K-9, sheriffs, the Highway Patrol, U.S. marshals and correctional officers.

r

10-78 Utah Foundation also serves as a support system for currently serving law enforcement by providing thank yous, support rallies, walks and fundraisers as well as raising awareness on behalf of the injured and providing future support for injured law enforcement.

r

10-78 Utah Foundation consists of one of the original founders and four other board members. It is 10-78 Utah Foundation’s hope and future goal to be able to stretch outside the state of Utah to provide this service to other states that don’t have such an organization. Currently, 10-78 Utah Foundation is the only organization statewide that provides this kind of relief support to any and all law enforcement agencies.
