By way of introduction, my name is Marc deClaire.  I’m a veteran Cookeville police officer and reside in Putnam County. 

As a local police officer who is on the front lines, there are times I will run across someone that needs some help that would require a small amount of money. Things such as a need for food/baby food, prescription medication, diapers, gas, transportation, minor car repair, etc.  I then created the Cookeville Human Fund to address the communities needs.


The Cookeville Human Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is tailored to "street-level" problem-solving incidents and encounters through the lens of law enforcement.  The CHF is totally funded by the community.  If you would like to make a donation please visit the donate page.
