Corporate Responsibilty

“As we grew-up, our parents instilled into Kathy and I that ‘To those who have been given much, much is expected,'”  said Peter Bocker, President of PKAT Arms. In other words, “it is better to give than to receive.”  Although PKAT Arms is only a small, family run business, we believe that we need to give back to our community. That being said, below are the different organizations that PKAT Arms support. Please click on to the links to these charities, and if you feel as strongly about them as Kathy and I, please feel free to give as well.

NC Troopers  Association The North Carolina Trooper’s Association was founded in 1977.
Why do we need a North Carolina Troopers Association?
We’re here:

  • To advance the principles of proper law enforcement and support the continuing betterment of criminal
    justice in the state of North Carolina and the United States of America;
  • To actively support legislation that improves law enforcement and to provide information to the
    membership on legislation that is related to or affects them as members;
  • To actively seek legislation that will benefit and enhance members during their tenure with the North
    Carolina State Highway Patrol and when they retire;
  • To establish liaison with the Colonel of the Highway Patrol and his administrative staff, keeping
    lines of communication always open for positive discussion on matters relating to association members
    or association business.
  • To advise members, when asked, about problems they might encounter;
  • To see that all laws protecting its members are upheld;
  • To seek new members in order to strengthen NCTA’s position as advocates for the largest possible
    number of NC Troopers.
