PITTSBURGH — Families of three slain Pittsburgh police officers will split about $1.5 million raised through T-shirt sales and other donations, police union officials told an Allegheny County judge Monday.
Any money received after Aug. 4 will go to a permanent foundation being established to help families of police, firefighters and paramedics killed in the line of duty, said Officer Dan O'Hara, president of Fraternal Order of Police Fort Pitt Lodge No. 1.
