The Missouri Law Enforcement Funeral Assistance Team is raising funds for the Barkwick Newton Fund.
The Barwick Newton National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund was established in 2004 to assist with transportation and other expenses incurred by family members of fallen officers who travel to Washington , DC to participate in National Police Week for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial dedication in Washington , DC. The Fund is named to honor our son St. Louis Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Barwick and honor Missouri Trooper Michael Newton, both of whom were killed in the line of duty.
The Fund was established when a trooper’s family underwent financial hardship in order to travel to Washington to honor their loved one during National Police Week. Officer Barwick’s father, Mitch and Trooper Steve Davis set himself a goal of raising just enough money to cover the trooper’s family expenses. The idea of a Fund was born.
One hundred percent of the donations they receive go towards travel expenses for the families of fallen officers. The Barwick Newton Fund is a 501(C)3 organization.
