About Delta Police Foundation
About the Delta Police Foundation
Founded in 2002, the Delta Police Foundation has made it possible for the public to support the Delta Police Department (DPD). Over the years, residents and businesses in Delta have helped raise thousands of dollars for initiatives that are outside the Department’s annual operating budget, including raising funds for the Emergency Command Vehicle, and the District Community Office volunteer fleet.
Over the past few years, the Delta Police Foundation shifted the focus from supporting capital projects, to supporting initiatives that promote and support relationships between the DPD and the community through community policing programs and initiatives.
The Foundation’s current strategic direction is to support initiatives to make connections and strengthen relationships between DPD officers and the community, with a focus on youth.
This direction is realized through various interactive events such as the 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament, Summer Solstice Run/Walk/Roll, Youth Leadership Conference, and the Student Police Academy.
Donations from our community are essential to success of these events. The support of our generous community ensures that these events can be held annually as they are not part of the DPD’s regular financial plan.
Your donations are invested in our community, and in the youth of our community, helping the DPD foster positive relationships with our community and youth, who are our future of this great community. This is relationship building and outreach initiatives with the youth are critical to ensure that that youth stay on the right path and lead positive lives.
A note of gratitude to our community
The Delta Police Foundation expresses our sincerest gratitude to our community members and businesses for their ongoing support. We appreciate and value the donations and generosity. Through our donation policy, our team works to that your contributions are utilized to make a meaningful impact in Delta.
