WAXHAW POLICE FOUNDATION
Working Towards a Brighter Future
At the Waxhaw Police Foundation we serve as a catalyst to increase excellence in policing while simultaneously facilitating tangible, positive change in the community.
The Waxhaw Police Foundation supports the Waxhaw Police Department via outside resources in creating a safe town for the citizens, businesses, the community, and Waxhaw’s future. The Foundation finds ways to support and influence police department success, as police services enhance community safety, quality of life and economic success. The WPF fully supports the Waxhaw Police Department’s mission of “collaborating with our community to prevent crime, promote safety, and enhance quality of life for our residents, workers, and visitors,” and their core goals.
WAXHAW POLICE FOUNDATION AT A GLANCE
The Waxhaw Police Foundation is an independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose vision is to be the conduit by which citizens and businesses can supplement and support funding of innovative police programs, equipment and technology, and community relationships to make Waxhaw a safer and more secure community in which to live, work, and visit.
WHAT IS A POLICE FOUNDATION?
A police foundation is a non-profit entity that works to support the needs of a police department budget when funding falls short. There are over a hundred police foundations in the United States and the list of communities and agencies with police foundations is growing. Jurisdictions of all sizes, geographic locations, and budgets have joined in these ventures, resulting in safer cities.
