Another way the Fontana POA contributes to local charities is by competing statewide against other law enforcement organizations at COPSWEST.
COPSWEST is a three day series of educational and training seminars along with a trade show and expo.
On one of days at the seminar-expo over 1,000 attendees purchase their lunch at the barbecue. All of the prize money which the POA or agency wins is donated to a charity chosen by the team.
Fontana POA has been consistently very successful in placing at the top. All of the money the F-POA wins goes directly to charities right here in Fontana.
