The 501(c)3 Capital Area Law Enforcement Foundation was established in 2016 following the assassination of the East Baton Rouge Parish officers. CALEF is a nonprofit foundation, whose objective is to assist area law enforcement in purchasing safety equipment, to better protect themselves while doing their jobs. CALEF is dedicated to doing everything possible to make certain all law enforcement officers make it home safely at the end of their shift.
We are currently serving Baton Rouge and its surrounding parishes. Our mission includes providing protective gear to those individuals and departments that cannot afford it. CALEF also assists the families of law enforcement in time of crisis.
CALEF is proud to support all law enforcement officials and their families whether city police departments, state police or sheriff’s departments within the Greater Baton Rouge area. These officers courageously protect over 800,000 people. The parishes we provide support to include:
East Baton Rouge
West Baton Rouge
CALEF is also proud to support our officers on the campuses of Louisiana State University and Southern University.
