FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation has awarded $28,000 in scholarships to 25 students in Kentucky.

The Gerald F. Healy Kentucky Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation Scholarships were given to telecommunicators, dependents of law enforcement officers and survivors of officers who died in the line of duty. Three of the 25 students were listed as surviving family of officers who died in the line of duty.

The foundation expanded its efforts in 2000 to include a financial endowment program. The organization says it helps Kentucky peace officers and their families with educational, medical and emergency relief. The Healy scholarship was created in 2004.

Gerald Healy, a restaurant owner, was a founding member of the foundation and served on the board of directors until his death in January 2009.
