About Us - how it began
 
In April 2012 a group of volunteers decided that a 'Charity' needed to be formed to help support Retired Police Dogs (RPDs) to ensure there was financial help towards vet and welfare costs.
 

Essex Retired Police Dogs Fund

(ERPDF) was established.

 
It was agreed that:-
  • ERPDF would be independent from Essex Police
  • ERPDF would be independent from any other charity or organisation
  • All involved with ERPDF would be unpaid volunteers.
  • A Committee would form the trustees. 
  • Serving Police Officers and/or Staff would not be permitted to hold office on the Committee - but would be welcome as volunteers/supporters.
  • All awards of financial assistance would be confidential to the Committee - unless the receipients chose to publicise.
