GLOCK Inc. has donated $30,000 to the DEA Survivors Benefit Fund, a non-profit charity, which provides memorials, continuing education and death benefits to the families of DEA Agents and Task Force Officers killed in the line of duty.
GLOCK National Sales Manager Robert Radecki presented the check Saturday at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference (IACP) in San Diego.
“These are challenging times for our country and law enforcement especially with the unprecedented dangers posed by fentanyl,” said chairman of the fund, Richard Crock, a retired DEA agent, in a statement. “You can be assured that the men and women of the US Drug Enforcement Administration continue to relentlessly pursue and prosecute the world’s most ruthless criminal organizations.”
“After suffering the loss of four special agents and deputized Task Force Officers over the last 36 months, we are honored to have Glock as one of our corporate partners,” Crock said.
GLOCK’s manager Radecki said in a statement that “GLOCK, Inc. has a long history of supporting the individuals and families of those that go into harm’s way. We are proud to contribute to this great organization which makes such a vital impact in the communities in which we all live.”
