Our Mission

Our mission is to assist injured officers, as well as police families, in times of need and family crisis.


Who We Are

Our association is composed of wives, mothers, sisters and widows of active and retired St. Louis area Police Officers, who as a group, have bonded together to assist injured officers, as well as police families, in times of need and family crisis. Our services include financial assistance, scholarships, memorial gifts, family support, family activities and volunteering at fundraisers.



Our most sincere thoughts go out to Officer O’Connor, his family, friends, the Arnold Police Department, and our Blue Line Family. We will continue to lift this family up, support them, and provide all that they need during this time. Please keep Officer O’Connor and family in your thoughts and prayers.

As requests are coming in with regards to donations, please know you may donate directly to Shield of Hope or St Louis City Police Officer’s Association with O’Connor listed in the memo line. Arnold Police Department has also created a GoFundMe account. Thank you for your generosity to the family during this time.
