About the Corpus Christi Police Foundation
CORPUS CHRISTI POLICE FOUNDATION
OUR MISSION. To create a safer Corpus Christi by strengthening the bond between the CCPD and the citizens it serves. With community support, we can help foster a better equipped, better trained police force and a better informed and more engaged public.
The Corpus Christi Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization formed by former business leaders to support the Corpus Christi Police Department. Donations made by individuals, corporations and foundations fund special programs, officer training, equipment, and new technology, none of which would be considered under our City budget.
The History of Police Foundations
In the United States, police foundations trace their history back to July 22, 1970, when
the Ford Foundation president McGeorge Bundy announced the formation of a
Police Development Fund to improve and modernize American policing.
Generally, now known as a police foundation, the organizations have spread across
the nation rapidly with prominent police foundations representing major police departments across the United States.
Police foundations serve local police departments by fundraising through special events, granting tax-exempt gifts
and individual donations to improve the effectiveness of police activities. To serve and protect to the best of their abilities, police departments need to keep pace with advanced technology, new equipment, and professional development. Police foundations help in this process by serving as a flexible arm of support.
The Corpus Christi Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization was formed in 2010 by former business leaders to support the Corpus Christi Police Department. Donations made by individuals, corporations and foundations fund special programs, officer training, equipment, and new technology, none of which would be considered under our City budget.
What We Do
The CCPF raises funds to purchase urgently needed state-of-the-art equipment and cutting-edge technology. This improves the effectiveness and efficiency of the CCPD in the prevention, identification, and investigation of criminal activity.
The CCPF supports programs that provide specialized training in order to ensure that the CCPD officers are instructed in latest law enforcement tactics and have the highest level of preparation possible for potential disasters and violence.
The CCPF has seen that canine units can be an important force multiplier for local police departments. Thus it has two police K9 programs. The first is designed to cover the start-up costs (such as acquiring and training the dog) associated with establishing a K9 unit in a department without one. The second police K9 program is designed to cover the costs of adding a second canine to police departments with a history of success with an existing K9 unit. Both programs make awards to all qualifying departments.
