26-239 C.M.R. ch. 109, § 1 - SOLICITATIONS THAT TANGIBLY BENEFIT LAW ENFORCEMENT

Current through 2022-14, April 6, 2022

A solicitation tangibly benefits a law enforcement agency, officer, or association if the proceeds of that solicitation are used, represented to be used, or intended to be used to support a law enforcement program or purpose which a law enforcement agency or association otherwise would have to fund through its own budgeting mechanisms. Examples of solicitations which tangibly benefit law enforcement are as follows: (1) A solicitation which raises money from community members to pay for the purchase of equipment for a local police department; (2) A solicitation to send an officer into school classrooms to conduct anti-drug abuse training (the money paying for the officer's salary and for education materials); and (3) The solicitation of funds for erection of a monument to memorialize slain officers, which was permitted by prior law, Priv. & Spec. Laws 1989, ch. 47.
