Fallen Phoenix Officer David Glasser fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

Family members of fallen Phoenix Officer David Glasser saw a huge outpouring of community support this weekend.

About 1,000 people showed up to support local law enforcement at the Officer David Glasser fundraising event Saturday, that was held between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Held at the Phoenix Air Support Unit at Deer Valley Airport, the event had a wide variety of family-oriented events such as the Phoenix Police helicopter, bomb squad unit, K-9 unit, food, vendors and raffle prizes. 

"We want people to come out, we want to connect with the community," said Commander Tom Van Dorn of the Phoenix Police Public Affairs Bureau.

The money raised today will help send Officer David Glasser's squad team to National Police Week in Washington, D.C. 

Officer Glasser was killed in the line of duty in May 2016, as he worked on a residential burglary call in the South Phoenix/Laveen area along with other officers.
