About Us

Our Mission

The New York City Police Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides resources for the NYPD to innovate and improve the quality of its services; build bridges with the community; and make New York City a safer place to live, work and visit.

The Police Foundation provides resources for four core areas of support which:

  • Advance programs to prevent violent crime, thwart terrorism, and safeguard the people of our city;

  • Strengthen communities by building relationships between the NYPD and community members, including young men and women across the five boroughs;

  • Enhance leadership, wellness and training within the NYPD; and

  • Pilot new technologies, and provide resources and services to protect the public and the police.

The Foundation does not purchase weapons (military or other) or ammunition of any kind for the Police Department.
