Tucson Police Officer’s Association helps family after fire

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON- The Tucson Police Department and Tucson Police Officer’s Association, TPOA, stepped up to help a family in need after responding to a domestic violence call.

Saturday, TPD responded to a domestic violence incident on the east side. A mother and her four young children, were the victim in the incident, in which all of their belongings were destroyed by a fire.

Officer Martika Reese responded to the domestic violence call. She said the officers wanted to do something kind for the family.

“After we were done with our portion of the investigation, we just felt like we wanted to go above and beyond for this family, because despite losing everything they were so sweet, so kind, so loving,” she said.

Reese said they wanted to help the family replace items they lost in the fire.

The officers reached out to their sergeant, who contacted TPOA.

Sergeant Jobe Dickinson, a TPOA board member, said the board voted to donate funds to the family.

The officers took the family to Target, where they bought school supplies, mattresses and shoes, among other things.
