In April 2002 the Foundation was privileged and pleased to announce that HRH The Prince of Wales
had agreed to become it's Patron.
Chairman of the Foundation, Mr Jim McDonald believed that the news would help bring comfort to former RUC officers, injured and disabled members and bereaved relatives.
He said "It is a tremendous tribute to all the police family in Northern Ireland. I am delighted The Prince of Wales has agreed to maintain a Royal link to the Royal Ulster Constabulary George Cross Foundation."
