About The John Petropoulos Memorial Fund

Constable John Petropoulos, a police officer with the Calgary Police Service in Canada, passed away on September 29, 2000 at the age of 32. John passed away in the line of duty while investigating a break & enter complaint. He died from brain injuries sustained after falling through a false ceiling, as there was no safety railing to warn him of the danger.

After his death, several of John’s recruit classmates set up the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund (JPMF) and raised monies through the sale of memorial pins to fellow officers. Subsequent pin sales, grants and ongoing donations continue to sustain the Fund.

The JPMF is a non-profit society incorporated in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Vision Statement
The John Petropoulos Memorial Fund (JPMF) creates partnerships which strive to eliminate preventable workplace fatalities and injuries to emergency services personnel.

Mission Statement
In the spirit of John’s dedication to helping make his community a safer place, the JPMF promotes the message to the public that workplace safety for emergency services workers is a shared responsibility. When communities work together, many risks to these workers can be minimized.
