Stamford Police Foundation Funding

Stamford Police Foundation Funding
Stamford Police Foundation has three major areas of funding focus:

- Crime Stoppers / Gun Stoppers: The Foundation funds the pool of awards for tips received from that public that result in an arrest and conviction of a criminal and/or weapon. The Foundation also works with the Police Department to develop, execute and fund effective advertising for the program.

- K-9 Unit: The Foundation is a continued supporter of the K-9 unit’s officers and K-9s. The K-9 unit is a program that always garners a lot of community support as well. With targeted donations from the community, as well as Foundation support, we have been able to provide bulletproof vests for the K-9s, training and uniforms for the K-9 handlers, and supplies such as collars, leashes and training toys.

- Management Training: Since the inception of the Stamford Police Foundation, we have funded 7 senior leaders for management training programs at the Harvard Kennedy School of Executive Education and the Police Executive Research Forum.

In addition to those programs we also support a variety of community events and organizations. The Foundation is an annual supporter of the Family Day barbeque event hosted by the Yerwood Center. The Foundation also supports the Fairfield County Police Pipes & Drums unit by providing them with uniforms and equipment.
