The union for Lakewood Police officers and sergeants has established a fund for the four officers killed today.

On its Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=83164294642), the union says every penny donated will go to the officers’ families and donations can be made to specific officers. Checks should be made out to the LPIG Benevolent Fund at P.O. Box 99579, Lakewood, WA 98499, according to the message posted by Brian D. Wurts, president of the Lakewood Police Independent Guild.

Wurts said he would “personally make sure” donations will go where intended. Wurts’ e-mail address is bwurts@lpig.us.
