Trevor P. Slot Foundation receives donation

WALKER, Mich. (WZZM) -- The Walker Police Department accepted a donation to the Trevor P. Slot Foundation Wednesday in honor of Officer Trevor Slot. He's the officer killed in the line of duty in October 2011.

The $11,700 donation will go toward scholarships for students who want to major in law enforcement or criminal justice.

The money was donated by the Women Who Care organization.

"This will really help us keep this legacy going for years," said Det. Jason Frank. "We have a golf outing and 5K, and neither will raise this much at once, so this is huge to us."

This year, four students were chosen for the scholarships and they will get $750 each.

The foundation hopes to get more donations and raise that amount every year.
