FAPD Public Safety Foundation

The Public Safety Foundation is a 501c3 charitable organization that is run completely separate from City Hall and the Forest Acres Police Department. It is comprised of local volunteers who want to dedicate their time to raising funds to buy items benefitting our officers in the line of duty. 

This can range from equipment to buy tasers or bullet proof vests or any other need that arises. Anyone may donate to the Public Safety Foundation.

The Foundation also awards an "Employee of the Quarter" every three months to an employee of FAPD. The award comes with gift cards or cash donations sponsored by local business owners.
