Our vision is safe community…a True-Blue Friend YEG!
The Edmonton Police Foundation stands for community and policing. A true-blue friend for the Edmonton Police Service and the citizens of Edmonton, the Edmonton Police Foundation was established to help position Edmonton as the safest city in North America. Building safe community begins with friendship. In June 2000, a group of business and community leaders came together to fund raise for Air 1, Edmonton’s first-ever police helicopter. Project SOS, a grassroots community appeal, captured the philanthropic spirit of Edmontonians, and in true-blue City of Champions fashion, citizens, businesses, church groups, service clubs, school groups and other organizations stood together, raised the funds and purchased Air 1 for the Edmonton Police Service.
When we act in friendship; good things happen. Through the support of our true-blue friends, the Foundation has provided more than $4.3M through our Community Policing and Excellence in Policing Program Grants to fund community-led policing initiatives to support the Edmonton Police Service in their excellence, innovation and leadership.
We want to do more! Be a #TBF and help us raise another $5M by 2021. Join in.
Generate funds and awareness to support priorities and emerging needs in community policing to assist the Edmonton Police Service and their community partners.
Edmonton is the safest city in North America.
