The Barwick/Newton National Law Enforcement 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 activities.
The Fund is named in memory of St. Louis Police Officer Michael Barwick and Missouri Trooper Michael Newton. The family of Officer Barwick started the Fund with the help of Missouri State Trooper Steve Davis to relieve the financial hardship experienced by Trooper Newton’s family in attending National Police Week. The Fund operates to prevent other families from experiencing similar hardship.
The Fund was established by the Transportation Research Project.
