To encourage and increase awareness of the importance of good relationships between law enforcement and the citizens of our western NC and Upstate SC communities, and to help fund unbudgeted needs of these law enforcement departments.
More About Us
The Sentinel Patriot Club dba STAND TA.L.L. is a NC 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Much of the money we raise is donated to area law enforcement for educational advancement of active duty law enforcement that is not part of the department budgets. These training funds include classes at Billy Graham’s The Cove, dealing with couples’ stress management, recertification training for skills needed within the departments, and advanced classes for career officers dealing with the changing face of criminal activities such as human trafficking and the opioid epidemic.
Unrestricted funds raised by STAND T.A.L.L. are also donated to law enforcement for equipment replacement or replenishment requested by the departments as long as the requested item is not provided for in their community budgets, like our recent K-9 Grant to local law enforcement for protective dog vests and the acquisition of new K-9 dogs for their departments and for K-9 handler & dog training and certification.
STAND T.A.L.L. provides educational funding through tuition support for college students entering a career in law enforcement through the Basic Law Enforcement Training class at the Criminal Justice Department of Blue Ridge Community College.
