On Monday April 9, 2018 the Southern Arizona Law Enforcement Foundation partnered with Chief Brian Seastone and the University of Arizona Police Department.  SALEF is pleased to work with UAPD on any community engagement events or programs as well as fund or supplement funding for equipment, items, technology or training that assist in protecting the safety of our UAPD officers.

On Thursday, May 17 SALEF along with the support of several local restaurants helped make Thank A Cop Day a special day of recognition for all of  our police officers.  Breakfast, lunch, dinner and late dinner was donated and delivered to UAPD.  The community was encouraged to drop off thank you cards and notes at a local police station and everyone was invited to walk up to an officer and say ‘Thank you’.   SALEF thanks our police officers every day for bravely protecting and so honorably serving the public.  If you would like to thank our officers for their service by making a donation to SALEF, please click on the donation

UAPD  hosted SALEF’s 10th Annual Canine Walk for Cops on the U of A Mall on April 21st.  The fundraising event enjoyed over 300 participants and doggies from the community who joined in support of our Tucson, Marana and U of A police officers and their K9’s.

In January 2018, SALEF presented their 13th Annual Unsung Heroes Dinner & Awards  Celebration at Ventana Canyon resort.  Lt. David Caballero of UAPD was nominated by his peers to be recognized for his work in the community above and beyond his regular duty.  To read about this prestigious award opportunity for our local law enforcement community and Lt.
