SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah 1033 Foundation recently announced the hiring of Bridgett Tasker as new executive director, and the appointment of former Layton Police Chief Terry Keefe to its board of directors.
"We are thrilled to welcome these two dynamic civic leaders to the Utah 1033 Foundation," said Tore Steen, the foundation's co-founder. "Their broad experience will add a valuable new prospective to the foundation and we look forward to benefitting from their acumen and energy in 2015."
Tasker has directed national and international campaigns for local organizations and is an experienced grants administrator for law enforcement and military fundraising.
Keefe's appointment expands the board to four directors. He is a 40-year veteran of law enforcement and started his career in 1974 with Clearfield police. He then joined West Valley police in 1980.
Keefe has twice served as president of the Utah Chiefs of Police Association, and Gov. Gary Herbert appointed Keefe to the Peace Officer Standards and Training Council, the State Interoperability Executive Committee, and the State Information Analysis Center.
The Utah 1033 Foundation is a nonprofit organization established in 2011 to honor Utah's fallen officers by providing immediate financial support to their families and presenting college scholarships to the children of active Utah law enforcement officers.
