On 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 community engagement events or programs as well as fund or supplement funding for equipment, technology or training that assists in protecting the safety of our UAPD officers.

Every year, SALEF, along with the support of  many local restaurants, help make Thank A Cop Day a special day of recognition for all of  our police officers.  Last year, breakfast, lunch, dinner and late dinner was donated and delivered to UAPD.  We encouraged the community 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 button.

UAPD  hosts SALEF’s Annual Canine Walk for Cops on the U of A Mall.  The fundraising event enjoys over 300 participants and doggies from the community who join in support of our Tucson, Marana and U of A police officers and their K9’s. Please visit on March 16, 2019 to see the officers and K9s and all the wonderful things they do to protect you!

SALEF is honored to have the opportunity to partner with our local  law enforcement agencies.  Visit UAPD’s site at: University of  Arizona Police Department.
