Become A Force Behind The Shield

Advancing The Mission

Since 1998, the Philadelphia Police Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)3, has quietly and effectively served the Philadelphia Police Department by supporting important program and equipment needs that are not included as part of the City of Philadelphia's annual budget.

ALMOST $1.2 MILLION IN THE PAST THREE YEARS

Funds raised go directly toward providing the needed equipment and materials to help improve public safety. Past efforts have included funding for:

  • Customized body armor for Police K9 Unit dogs
  • Eight motorcycles for Police Highway Patrol
  • Funding for Police Explorer Cadet Program
  • K-8 scholarships for children of police officers killed or seriously injured
  • Bicycles and related equipment for the Police Bike Unit
  • Equipment and funding for the Mounted Patrol Unit
  • Kevlar bulletproof vests
  • Supervisory training
  • Holocaust Museum and Anti-Defamation League Training
