CHAMPAIGN COUNTY — A new non-profit organization is being created to support law enforcement officers county-wide.

In response to a group of local officers who traveled to Dallas/Ft. Worth to honor five fallen officers, an Urbana police sergeant, Sgt. Matt Rivers, and his wife, Christy, developed the Police Support Association (PSA) to provide a variety of support for law enforcement officers and their families.

The group’s goals include enhancing lives of officers with material, emergency and emotional support; support to law enforcement families; provide service and outreach to area communities.

Anyone interested in supporting PSA publicly or privately is welcome to become a member. Membership is free.

The first material goal of PSA is to raise enough money to buy rifle-rated body armor for all uniformed officers in the county.

Police Support Association 
First public meeting
September 11, 3 pm
1701 East Main Street, Urbana
