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.

Cruise Night CAME...AND WENT

It was great to see our many friends, donors, and community at Cruise Night.  It sure must have been a sellout crowd.  Last year, an
estimated  35,000 plus people attended the event.

There were 400 vintage cars to ooh and ahh over, lots of great eats, and  many vendors.  I hope you didn’t miss our SWAT display.  Sgt. Darby took the lead.  We had very interesting weaponry, including the little robot that keeps officers safe and allows access to dangerous and small spaces.

The K-9 Unit

The K-9 Unit was the star of the show.  The handlers had a great table, filled with caps, stuffed dogs, shirts, and much more.  All proceeds from the sale of merchandise go directly to help keep up the K-9s, so thanks for buying a mug, or shirt or cap.  The dogs made their appearances and wowed the crowd.

Did you pick up a brochure for the upcoming Glendale K-9s in the Park on October 10, 2015?  I hope so. We sold out of vendor spaces last year, so it’s always good to get your reservation in early if you are a non-profit or a vendor.  Choose YOUR sponsorship level early and beat the rush.  Remember, your donations built the K-9 Unit in 2005 and continue to pay for food, training and medical care for the dogs. We will have more upcoming news about the event in the next week.

Three great bands: 

Santana, The Chantays, and Jumpin’ Jack Flash kept toes tapping and even a few people dancing in the streets. And, a shortly after 10:00 the fireworks went up, giving Brand Boulevard a great glow. 

We’ll have pictures up by Tuesday! 

You are Important

One thing we never lose sight of:  You and members of the Glendale community are why the Glendale Foundation is able to help the Glendale Police Department.  Your donations make it possible to continue to offer quality programs, such as the K-9 Unit, Community Academy, and mini-grants. We depend on your generosity to help make Glendale a safe and prosperous city for us all.

So take a moment and make a donation—large or small.  We are grateful for both.
