Our Mission & Vision
The mission of the Fayetteville Police Foundation is to engage the citizens, businesses and non-profit support organizations of Fayetteville, NC to provide time and financial resources in support of the Fayetteville Police Department in its mission to provide a safe and secure environment conducive to economic growth and a higher quality of life as a united community.
To engage the Fayetteville community in providing time and financial resources in support of the Fayetteville Police Department in preventing crime and making Fayetteville one of the safest cities in North Carolina.
The Fayetteville Police Foundation, founded in 2009, is an independent non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to fostering public safety through community building, education and outreach.
While the city budget provides the necessary resources to fund operations of the Fayetteville Police Department, a number of programs are underfunded or not funded due to a lack of funding. The foundation was created as a catalyst in responding to this need, so that no innovative program would be left behind.
Role of the Foundation
The FPF recognizes that the Fayetteville Police Department, with 90% of the annual budget going to support personnel and operational costs, has very little flexibility to develop new programs and encourage innovation. The role of the foundation is not to displace funding for basic law enforcement, or to reduce in any way the responsibility of the City of Fayetteville to commit the necessary funding for law enforcement services for its citizens. As modern law enforcement strategies and techniques continue to be more complex, the Fayetteville Police Department, similar to police departments across the country, has increasing needs to stay current with crime fighting strategies and innovative technology.
