How We are doing great things
The Tucson Police Foundation was established in 2003. Ongoing collaboration with Tucson Police Department personnel allows the Police Foundation to provide some of the Officers greatest needs. The Police Foundation has been able to fully fund or supplement the cost of safety equipment, technology items and ongoing officer safety training. The Police Foundation raises money by participating in many competitive grant processes, presenting community fundraising events and programs and by building relationships with local corporate and business partners.
Some recent items the Police Foundation has been able to provide includes: 10 Vehicle Heat Sensor with Alarm Notification Systems, 10 Non-Lethal Pepperball Launch Systems and 2 Remote Control robotic cameras for the K9 Unit, 5 bicycles and gear for the Bicycle Patrol Unit, a new bomb-sniffing dog (‘Lady’) for the Bomb Unit, 12 Window Tint Meters for Patrol and SniperFest Training for SWAT Officers.
