The Vallejo Police Officers’ Association has a strong commitment to the youth in our community. As such, we award up to five $500 scholarships to college-bound graduating high school seniors each year. The scholarships are in the names of our fallen officers who made the ultimate sacrifice to the City of Vallejo and its citizens. We remember these officers by naming the scholarships after Officers Calvin Thacker, William Easson Jr., Jeff Azuar and Jim Capoot. In addition, we also recognize Lieutenant Doug Clark who supported high school seniors in our community.
Who may apply? The Vallejo Police Officers’ Association encourages all graduating seniors bound for a two or four year college or university to apply.
