The Glendale Police Foundation provides funding to:

  1. Bullet  Support Glendale Police Department operations and promote public safety.

  2. Bullet   Strengthen community/police partnerships.

  3. Bullet   Encourage innovations.

  4. Bullet   Promote officer safety.

  5. Bullet   Recognize and honor heroism, valor, and outstanding achievements.

The FBI released a recent report naming Glendale one of the safest cities in the nation.  This doesn’t happen by magic. Each year, our Police Department is asked to do more for public safety with fewer officers and less funding. Result:  Your donations provide the tools, training, technology and equipment that might otherwise go unfunded. Together, we are keeping Glendale safe.

The Year in Review 2015

In 2015 we made some great leaps forward. 

Annual Awards Luncheon

We partnered with the Glendale Police Department to host the Annual Awards Luncheon in May (which was such a success we have to move to a larger building to hold everyone who wants to attend the popular luncheon).

Open House

We helped put on an Open House that was well received and attended by the community. It provided a forum for police and community members to have open and constructive dialogue. And, we’re not shy, it was a lot of fun--with all the children’s activities and more.

Cruise Night

Cruise Night gave us another chance to meet with the public. Our K-9 Unit put on an outstanding show there.  The public adores the K-9s, and throngs crowded to take pictures, pet the dogs or receive a doggy slurp on the arm or face.

In addition, the SWAT team was very popular with the community, showing off their weaponry.

Annual Glendale K-9s in the Park

We also helped host the Annual Glendale K-9s in the Park, which has morphed from a dog show to a family day at the park, with lots of K-9 demonstrations, vendors, great food and more.
