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.
The Fund is named in honor of St. Louis Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Barwick and Missouri State Trooper Michael Newton, both whom were killed in the line of duty. The Fund was established when a Troopers family underwent financial hardship in order to travel to Washington DC to honor their loved one during National Police Week. Officer Barwick’s father Mitch and Mo State Trooper Steve Davis set a goal to raise enough money to cover the expenses for the Troopers family. The idea of a Fund was born. Officer Barwick’s family wanted to honor their son, so they and Trooper Davis formed the Barwick Newton Fund. The Fund operates today to prevent other families of fallen officers who may not be able to otherwise travel to Washington DC for National Police Week. 100% of monies raised for the Fund are used to cover travel and other expenses incurred by the families of fallen officers. We are a 501 (3) c tax-exempt fund.
