Welcome to the Website of Police Foundation of Colorado Springs. The Police Foundation’s mission is to strengthen the services of the Colorado Springs Police Department, while promoting excellence in the department and improving public safety by providing resources not otherwise available from the City.
Since the Foundation was established in 2009, it has contributed more than $128,000 to fund equipment and training that enhance the safety and professionalism of the city’s police force and that contribute to public safety.
One of the items funded by the Foundation is a medical trauma kit that is issued to each sworn officer and full time community service officer in the department. Each kit contains supplies that officers can use to stabilize injured individuals until more advanced medical aid arrives on scene. Officer feedback on the effectiveness of the kits has been very positive and encouraging.
The Foundation also is responsible for hosting the annual Medal of Valor Program, which honors police officers for acts of heroism in the line of duty. The Foundation is honored to be a part of this program and to continue a worthy tradition that began almost 30 years ago.
As our city continues to grow, the challenges faced by our Police Department expand and test those who have sworn to protect and serve our community. The Police Foundation provides an important avenue for the private sector to come alongside the Police Department to support the department in its mission.
I am grateful for those who protect and serve in our community. The Police Foundation of Colorado Springs allows us to show our gratitude and enhance the Colorado Springs Police Department’s capabilities through investments in technology, education and training.
Through the Police Foundation, business and community leaders are taking an active role to ensure Colorado Springs has a highly trained and capable police force, which effectively and efficiently serves the needs of our community.
Thank you for joining us in this important effort!
