The Redwood City Police Department is mourning the loss of one of their officers who died Friday, January 20, 2017 while on duty.

On the night of January 10, 2017, the home of our most recent fallen officer Michael Katherman #3900 was flooded. His wife and two young sons are safe. Thankfully, San Jose Fire and Mutual Aid responded and got them evacuated safely.

As you can imagine, there is a lot of damage and right now they are still in the process of assessing their needs, dealing with insurance companies, etc. They cannot occupy the house and do not yet know what will be covered by insurance, but there will be loss that can not be recovered.

Checks can be made payable to: SJPOACF. Please write "Katherman Recovery" in the memo line.

The San Jose Police Officers' Association Charitable Foundation is conducting our Annual Charitable Foundation Fundraising Drive. Your donation is what allows us to continue supporting positive community programs such as youth recreation leagues, drug resistance programs, victim support groups, widow and orphan support, developmentally disabled childrens programs and college scholarships.

We understand that these are tough times for many San Jose families - which is why charitable programs are more important than ever. By sponsoring league programs we are giving kids positive activities that keep them off the streets, and through scholarships we are helping hard working yet underprivileged students fight for the American Dream. Because we are a not-for-profit charity organization, your gift is 100% tax deductible. And you can be confident your donation is directly benefiting our community in a positive way. As police officers, our top priority is keeping our community safe and secure. That means performing our job to the highest standard possible, and giving back to our community through charitable Programs.

Thank you for your support.
Paul Kelly
President, San Jose Police Officers' Association Charitable Foundation
