History

In 2014, the Boca Raton Police Foundation was established by local citizens, business owners and civic leaders who recognized the need to provide additional financial support to the Boca Raton Police Department.

Increasing community expectations, budget reductions, rapidly changing equipment and technology and the need for a flexible funding option separate from the city budgetary process led to the formation of the Foundation.

The Boca Raton Police Department has over 200 officers and an annual budget of approximately $47 million. But with over 90% of its budget devoted to personnel, vehicles, equipment and buildings, BRPD has little financial flexibility in an era in which the threats facing our community are growing and becoming more complex.

The BRPF exists for one reason: to raise much-needed funds for the Boca Raton Police Department. Every dollar you donate helps our heroic men and women stay current with crime fighting strategies and innovative technology.

Foundation Focus

We are passionately dedicated to ensuring that Boca Raton remains a safe city. We look to enhance the Police Department’s ability to acquire the newest and most up-to-date equipment and training to improve public safety, impact officer readiness, and enhance our quality of life.

The BRPF is separate from the youth programs of the Police Department such as the Police Athletic League, Police Explorers and the Fraternal Order of Police.

chief_dan_alexanderLetter from the Chief

It is my pleasure to offer this letter of support for the Boca Raton Police Foundation. This very important organization was created to assist the Boca Raton Police Services Department by providing resources above and beyond what we receive from the general public. More specifically, the Foundation helps the Department acquire the training, software, hardware and equipment it needs to remain a highly progressive law enforcement agency.

The Boca Raton Police Foundation is more than just a funding source. The board of directors works closely with my office to explore emerging trends and to identify effective public safety strategies. The Foundation strengthens partnerships between the Department and other programs, such as the Police Athletic League and the Police Explorers. The Foundation also encourages excellence in policing by recognizing outstanding achievement.

For many years, the Boca Raton Police Services Department has been nationally recognized as a leader in law enforcement. The City of Boca Raton community and its government have made a significant investment in maintaining this commitment to policing excellence. The Boca Raton Police Foundation is a key partner in our quest to take policing to the next level in Boca Raton. I encourage you to fully explore the Foundation through their web site, and consider how you might support this worthy cause. Thank you.
