Where the City of Philadelphia’s budget ends, the work of the Philadelphia Police Foundation begins.
The mission of the Philadelphia Police Foundation is to provide important support and resources to the Philadelphia Police Department to assist the Department in ensuring the safety and security of the city’s residents, visitors and businesses.
The Philadelphia Police Foundation stands for Transparent, Equitable and Accountable Policing. We support the Philadelphia Police Department in serving every community justly and fairly in our mission to bring about a safer city for all residents, visitors, and the workforce.
We live in a time when police officers are not just guardians protecting against crime and surging gun violence, but very much social workers tasked with addressing overwhelming national issues like homelessness, addiction, mental health, and so much more.
The PPF helps to provide solutions for better policing in Philadelphia.
Our vision is to help Philadelphia Police operate at the highest level of service, accountability, and transparency — ultimately bringing about better policing and enhanced safety for everyone. Our efforts continue to expand as we aim to generate significant impacts in response to the continued decrease of city resources amidst increased demands put on the Philadelphia Police Department.
