SDPD Officer Wade Irwin Family Fund
Officer Irwin is a member of the Fraternal Order of Police and the National Latino Police Officers Association. He is a dedicated husband, father and loves serving and protecting. He is fighting to get better every day and we can not wait to see him back in uniform. His wife has been at his side attending to his needs.
It will be a long road to recovery even after the physical wounds heal. His biological brothers and sisters traveled from miles away to be at his side. His brothers and sisters in law enforcement are also praying for a speedy recovery. Please help financially to keep his wife by his side and his family close during these most challenging times. All proceeds go directly to Wade, his wife and baby girl.
Thank you for the comment/question. The Irwin family has control of the GoFundMe account. In regard to how the money is disseminated it is at their discretion.

I'm Kevin McQuillen, President of the San Diego County Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Lodge 10. Officer Irwin is a member. Nina Medina is a Vice President of the National Latino Police Officers Association.
This fund is set up specifically to deal with the unexpected expenses incurred by the family while going through this ordeal.
We are grateful for everyone's generosity and support and we do appreciate all of the questions and comments. Please remember that Officer Wade is a member of our police family and keep him, his family and all police officers in your thoughts and prayers during this time.
Thank you very much.
Makes me sick someone would even question the donations. These officers protect our lives and put theirs on the line for our wellbeing. Never knowing if it'll be the last time they kiss their kids goodbye or hug their spouse. My father was in SDPD for 30 plus years and he put others lives before his own. These offices deserve everything and more. They are truly San Diego's finest.
Yes he is paid workmans comp but his wife is most likely on an unpaid family leave. Their child needs to be cared for daily and their usual bills, set for 2 paychecks still have to be paid. Why would you try to dicredit anyone for helping someone that needs help. Your skepticism knows no bounds. You don't want to contribute, DONT but leave others who want to help alone. Just sayin!
Thank you to everyone of Wade's family in "blue" for making this donation page possible. Wades' wife grew up with my daughter in the Cottonwood neighborhood and this is too close to home in tragedy! Blessings and prayers to all who gave and continue to support this family. Also a prayer and hug to the family of the De Guzman Family for their loss. God Bless.
He will only be paid for a 40 hr week. Very few officers work only 40 hrs because of late arrests, court dates and filling in for sick or injured officers. Also there are extra expenses when you are in hospital. I wish the family well and only wish I had more extra cash.
When does Officer Irwin and his family get all the money???
Everyone try to help. Workers Compensation doesn't kick in right away. Sometimes WC is only a percentage of your normal pay.
