The Calgary Police Foundation (CPF) was established to partner exclusively with the Calgary Police Service (CPS). The CPF funds six youth-based programs with the goal of reduced youth victimization and criminal activity. This is done by focusing on education, prevention and early intervention.
The CPF targets areas where the need is greatest and implements these programs where they will have the most impact on our children, youth and families. CPF funded programs educate and assist our local youth, and help to ensure Calgary is a great place to live and raise our families.
The CPF funded programs fall within the CPS Crime Prevention and Reduction Continuum.
OUR PURPOSE: Safe kids, safe families, safe Calgary.
OUR MANDATE: The Calgary Police Foundation is an independent entity that partners exclusively with the Calgary Police Service. Together we support carefully selected community initiatives to prevent children and youth from victimization and engaging in criminal activity. This is achieved by focusing on education, prevention, and early intervention programs which are not funded by traditional government sources.
OUR PROMISE: Committed to keeping children safe and strong.
OUR HISTORY: The Calgary Police Foundation has long been a dream of the Calgary Police Service. The vision was to have an independent agency that would leverage the Calgary Police Service’s strength and credibility, and fund their partnerships with reputable community agencies. The Calgary Police Commission lent their weight and expertise, and began the process of forming the Calgary Police Foundation in 2010. A dedicated Board of Directors, recruited by Board Chair Brian Ferguson, CEO of Cenovus (retired), provided guidance and leadership to the organization, and the CPF received its charitable status in late 2011.
Together, we are helping youth by changing lives…and saving lives.
