Broward Sheriff's Office: Public Information Office

PIO Number: 19-8-4

Date: August 8, 2019

Every year, the Broward Sheriff’s Office helps local non-profit organizations further their mission in the community by helping them apply for money from the Law Enforcement Trust Fund (LETF). Why not find out if this year we can help yours?

LETF money comes from the seizure and forfeiture of contraband that has been used in the commission of a felony, and state law allows BSO to use those funds for the benefit of the community.

Find out if your charitable organization is eligible to receive part of those funds at our upcoming workshop. This workshop is mandatory to become a recipient of LETF funds. Please, arrive early as doors will close promptly at 2 p.m.

Law Enforcement Trust Fund Workshop
2 - 4 p.m., Wednesday, September 18, 2019
African-American Research Library and Cultural Center
2650 Sistrunk Blvd., Fort Lauderdale

At the workshop, you can learn more about the qualifying rules and receive assistance with the application process. 

Staff will be available to answer any questions. The deadline for submission of LETF applications is Monday, October 28, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. 

We anticipate the County Commission will award the LETF funds in 2020.

Sheriff Gregory Tony and the men and women of BSO look forward to the opportunity to assist organizations with funding to help them be even more successful in serving the needs of our community.
