Bay Area Law Enforcement Assistance Fund

What is BALEAF?


BALEAF, founded in 1999, provides support to law enforcement families who have experienced a member killed in the line of duty, loss of life, serious injury or illness.


BALEAF can provide immediate funding for a range of needs in these difficult circumstances.


BALEAF supports all employees of law enforcement agencies within the San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding counties.


The BALEAF Board of Directors includes active and retired officers, as well as survivors of members we have lost.


Since 1999, BALEAF has assisted 41 agencies and contributed to both the Twin Towers Fund and the Katrina Disaster Relief Fund. As of 2014, BALEAF has contributed over $650,000 to law enforcement families in need, thanks to the generosity of those who have donated to the Bay Area Law Enforcement Assistance Fund.

BALEAF provides:


  • Short term financial assistance
  • Referrals for psychological services, grief support, and spiritual support
  • Educational scholarships

President's Message


As we spring into 2015, I would like to update you on our current BALEAF events.  On Saturday, May 16th, we will hold our 2nd Annual Fairfield Motorcycle Competition.  This event is open to the public, and BALEAF invites you to join the FAIRFIELD Police Department and all other Law enforcement professionals from across the nation as they compete and demonstrate their riding skills.  There will be police exhibits, police k-9 demonstration, Fairfield fire Professionals, a children's bicycle rodeo, a bike safety education program, as well as various vendors.  All proceeds are to benefit BALEAF.  The BALEAF Board of Directors will also be in attendance with several different logo items available, such as hoodies, tee-shirts, caps, beanies, pins, and bobble heads. Your donations towards these items are greatly appreciated.  


Our 13th Annual Law Enforcement Night with the San Francisco Giants vs. the Miwaukee Brewers will be on Tuesday, July 28th.  There will be a pre-game Home Plate Memorial Tribute to Northern California Police Officers who have died in the line of duty with a fly-over by Law Enforcement Units.  Go to our link below to EVENTS for more information.  And, of course, don't miss our pre-game tailgate party at the Mariposa Yacht Club!  


On behalf of myself and the Board of Directors, I would like to thank you for your ongoing support.  BALEAF assists law enforcement members and their families who have experienced a line of duty death, a catastrophic event, serious injury or illness.  We hope that you never need us, but we're here if you do.


Thank You!

Kelly Blackwell-Garcia

President of BALEAF
