About the foundation
Better trained, equipped, and supported officers make a better, safer Evansville.
The Evansville police foundation…
A collaborative group of community leaders founded the Evansville Police Foundation (EPF) as a 501c3 corporation in 2008. The purpose of the Foundation is to enhance public safety by focusing its resources on:
- Community outreach programs
- Advanced training and specialized equipment
- Scholarships for children/grandchildren of police personnel
- Support police personnel during times of hardship
The mission of the Evansville Police Foundation is to act as an independent entity that provides additional resources for the Evansville Police Department to enhance public safety and law enforcement in our community.
