    New Community Organization Formed to Help Police

    The El Paso Police Department recently announced the formation of the El Paso Police Foundation, a non-profit community organization formed by citizens to assist the El Paso Police Department with funding to improve public safety and community partnerships. El Paso Mayor John Cook, El Paso Police Chief Richard Wiles and the Board of directors for the El Paso Police Foundation were present at an event at El Paso Police Headquarters announcing the formation.

    The El Paso Police Foundation represents a public/private partnership designed to assist our Police Department in building positive relationships within the community, improving officer proficiency and safety, and augmenting law enforcement equipment and technology in order to enhance public safety and quality of life within the City of El Paso.

    The Foundation does not relieve the City of its responsibility to provide the necessary funding for law enforcement services. Instead, the Foundation is able to complement existing Department funding, allowing the Department to support additional programs and maximize its resources. To this end, the Foundation provides support that addresses three overall areas:

    • Public Safety Improvements Includes initiatives that address specific public safety needs, improve police effectiveness, and officer safety through the use of specialized equipment, evolving technology, and other innovations.
    • Community Partnerships Includes projects that enhance the relationship between the community and the El Paso Police Department.
    • Employee Development Includes programs designed to provide improved training and development opportunities to officers, educational assistance, and employee recognition efforts.
    Funding provided through the Foundation supports dozens of initiatives in these critical need areas each year, allowing the El Paso Police Department to undertake innovative projects, improving its ability to serve the citizens of El Paso.

    Those wishing to know more information about the El Paso Police Foundation can contact them at (915) 872-3788. Anyone that would like to make a donation may mail it in to: El Paso Police Foundation, P.O. Box 972921, El Paso Texas 79997.
