Smith said in a press statement:
“While participating in the Memorial Foundation’s Charity Golf Tournament I had the opportunity to get to know families that lost a loved one,” says Stuart Smith, Heaven & Earth.
He continues, “They lost a spouse or a parent over something so stupid as a traffic stop. My heart went out to them. I am very proud to be able to help out the men and women of the LAPD that do this every day for so little and are generally very unappreciated. Steven Tyler also wanted to do more to help.”
The Foundation is dedicated to providing help to LAPD employees and to the close family members who have been directly afflicted by a tragedy involving an officer in the line of duty. The foundation also looks out to the widows, widowers and children of Officers killed while working.
