ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)– A pancake feast Sunday morning to support a group that works to help law enforcement officers survive the streets.
A breakfast fundraiser at the Elk’s Lodge raised money for the Officer Street Survival Training Program.
The non-profit offers extra training for officers to help reduce the risk in dangerous situations they face that could possibly turn deadly.
Founder Jim McGrane says it’s a level of training most departments simply can’t afford.
Mcgrane started the organization after he lost his son James, a Bernalillo County Deputy who was gunned down in 2006 by a convicted felon during a traffic stop.
