The Law Enforcement Foundation was founded in 1998 by former Sheriff Thomas A. Beilein and Undersheriff Samuel J. Muscarella Jr. with the goal to support local law enforcement efforts not funded by tax payer dollars. The Foundation funds projects that support public safety and provides increased safety to the citizens of Niagara County and beyond.


Tax deductable contributions are used by the Foundation to support countless programs such as D.A.R.E., Mercy Flight, police officer training programs, crime prevention, officer memorial services and assistance programs. The Foundation has provided direct contributions to D.A.R.E., Emergency Response and K-9 unit at the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office for equipment and services available to all law enforcement agencies countywide.


Donations to the Foundation provide county residents, as well as everyone, a chance to partner with law enforcement to assist in our fight to combat crime and assist the dedicated men and woman who lead the fight. Your tax deductible contribution to assist this worthwhile cause can be made to the NIAGARA COUNTY LAW ENFORCEMENT FOUNDATION and mailed to 5526 Niagara Street Extension, Lockport, New York 14094.  You can also donate by designating the Niagara County Law Enforcement Foundation as your specified charity when you shop at Amazon.  Click the Foundation Logo below to start giving while you shop!  You can also give a direct donation through PayPal by clicking the PayPal button below.
