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 tens of 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.

A safe city is a strong city.

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

Some of the projects the LAPF has funded for the LAPD include the following: Counter-Terrorism, Trauma Shooting Kits, On-Body Cameras, Staff Morale & Wellness, Juvenile Impact Program, DNA Backlog, Community Relations, Traffic Safety, and Professional Standards/Internal Affairs.
