What We Do

Public safety is the foundation upon which strong communities are built.

The Los Angeles Police Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organization that provides critical resources and vital support to the Los Angeles Police Department. From essential equipment and state-of-the-art technology to specialized training and innovative programs that would otherwise be unfunded, the funding we provide directly improves public safety, impacts officer readiness, and enhances our quality of life. As the largest source of private support for the LAPD, we are passionately dedicated to ensuring that Los Angeles remains America’s safest major city. Since our establishment in 1998, we have invested millions of dollars in hundreds of LAPD initiatives that promote excellence, expand capabilities, strengthen neighborhoods and create opportunities for at-risk youth. We believe a safe city is a strong city. Together, we can make a difference.

The Los Angeles Police Foundation is committed to providing critical resources to safeguard our city and developing relationships that make our communities strong.

Public safety is too important to our businesses, our neighborhoods, and our families to be dependent upon diminishing government resources.

A safe city is a strong city.

As an independent, not-for-profit organization and the largest private source of funding for the LAPD, our public/private partnership is a model of what can be achieved when we all work together for the common good.
