Raised for our Bullet Proof Vest replacement effort which began in 2011. Since then, the foundation provided over 450 TPD Field Officers with Bullet Proof Vests. Vests are one example of the critical life saving pieces of equipment SALEF raises money for so we can keep our protectors protected.
Teen drivers were provided life-saving driving skills and training since 2004. Classes are free, taught by TPD professional driving instructors, vehicles are provided by TPD and Jim Click Automotive and you could receive a discount on insurance.
Spectators and 600 show vehicles attend the annual Cops & Rodders Car Show. The show will highlight Police Officers and displays from Tucson Police, Marana Police, UofA Police, Pima County Sheriff’s Department, Oro Valley Police and our local law enforcement agencies.
The Southern Arizona Law Enforcement Foundation thanks the sponsors and contributors to our fundraising events and programs. Without the donations from the community, sponsors, grants and individuals like you, we could not achieve our mission to support, honor and help keep our officers safe.
On July 21, 2020, SALEF was honored to present the Tucson Airport Authority Police Department with an official welcome letter confirming SALEF’s partnership with TAAPD.
