I am a Constable( Law Enforcement) and get these calls all the time. They usually try to get to my wife, who contributed once thinking they were legit. I play along and ask questions to which I get variable answers. The NPTA is not a charitable tax exempt organization. They are an arm of the AFLCIO. The paid fundraisers get a bug chunk of any donations and where the rest of the money goes is somewhat hard to track. The fact they have a D- rating with the BBB tells it all.

Just received a call wanting a donation. After research found out this is one of the AFL/CIO subsidiaries. It is NOT a tax deductible charity. Low value for me.
I will give to our local FOP. At least I know where my money will go.

Just received a call on my cell phone. Never have received charitable calls on my cell. They wanted a commitment for a donation and then sent me to the donation department for my credit card or debit. Red flags went up immediately and I asked for their phone number and website. This is where I found all your comments. Thank you for posting. I will also give locally to our public servants.

Thank you everyone!!!! I was also called and they right away wanted my credit card or debit card number over the phone. I said I will not give my information out to people over the phone. Send me the information for me to review. Later this week I was called by a local police department for the same thing and I said so you want my information now and he said oh no we don't ask for any personal information over the phone. We will send you the packet for you to review. Hmmm that seems to be the proper way of handling it. And they also said it was to help the officers family's in Florida. Then why is the return address in Brookfield, WI. No, I think I to will keep my donations for the local police department. Now I think ill see what BBB has on them.

Yes, thanks everyone for sharing your information. I gave to them before but became suspicious this year because they called so many times, even after i committed to make a donation. They will not be receiving anymore funds from me either. I also will give locally.

I heard the smeal about helping police and troopers and did some research and found that the money goes to the smeal not the troopers or police. I pledged 50.00 but I only wrote a note after my research said they are not true to their word 100%. I donated a stamp to get my message across which is about what they give to the bravest.

I got the same call. I agreed to $15. As I was being transferred, I looked up this organization and it was poorly rated. So I specifically asked how much was going to the organization. Only 10%. I told them "absolutely not!" and hung up.

Got the call and was asked donate. I've donated to police groups before so agreed to a $25 donation. I was quickly transferred to a "supervisor" to "assure" the pledge amount. I was almost immediately asked "Would you prefer debit or credit to complete the donation?" I expressed that I do not ever give out that info over the phone to strangers. I requested the invoice be mailed, and I let her know I also wanted to check up on the organization. That mail arrived and it's got more red flags than Red Square during the Stalin years. Not tax deductible. No option of debit or card, just a check. The "supervisor" had stated they want a money order, among the other red flags during the cold call conversation. Lots of small print on the back, in a hard to read light blue color and small font., mostly concerning various states and the laws pertaining to such solicitations.Listed among the bullet points of their programs are "To pay the costs of the fund drive" and "General Welfare of the organization". Oddly, given that this is a police fund, "Financial contributions to organizations for physically challenged individuals". How mush do we want to bet that the organization for "physically challenged individuals" is another scam organization?No pre-stamped envelop, I need to pay for the stamp. And the company collecting the donations is a for-profit company who then remits the funds to NTPA...

I received a phone call asking to donate to National Police & Troopers Ass. When Ireceived my envelope I had a sense something maybe fishy.I looked them up on the computer. Does'nt look like too much goes to the police or troopers. Sorry guys.

The National Troopers and Police Association is calling my house on an average of 2-3 times a week. Even so I have asked politely numerous times for them to stop calling they keep on calling. Now I just hang up but this does not help my thinking about police and troppers as a whole.
STOP CALLING and honor me asking YOU not to do so.
