Torrance POA Annual Scholarship

For the past 30 years, since 1992, the Torrance Police Officers Association has held our Memorial Charity Golf Tournament, where 100% of the tournament proceeds fund 5 (five) Scholarships for a total amount of $10,000 for students attending our local High Schools. These Scholarships are awarded in memory of our fallen police officers who gave their lives while serving the citizens of Torrance. The Torrance Police Officers Association, incorporated on February 18, 1950, is a non-profit 501 (c) (4) organization, with over 200 police officers, dedicated to serving the City of Torrance. All donations or sponsorships are tax deductible.

With the rising cost of college education, the Torrance Police Officers Association, with your kind assistance, strives to continue helping the youths of our community and hopes to increase the funding we can provide.

Please join us for our Memorial Golf Tournament (Click here to visit event page) and help us to raise the funds to honor these fallen officers and to support the future leaders of our community
