The Dayton Fraternal Order of Police has started a fundraiser to help support Det. Jorge Del Rio’s family following his death.

Jerry Dix with FOP Lodge 44 launched a GoFundMe page Thursday afternoon with the goal of raising $75,000 for Del Rio's family.

“100 % of the proceeds will go to the wife and family of Det. Jorge Del Rio,” Dix wrote on the GoFundMe page.
