The Charlottesville Police Foundation (CPF) was founded in 2004 by a group of dedicated local citizens to support the Charlottesville Police Department (CPD). High housing costs in the Charlottesville area make it difficult for officers to be able to live in the city they serve. In addition, the bulk of the Charlottesville Police Department budget pays for vehicles and salaries. The foundation fills many gaps by providing advanced training, new technologies and equipment, housing assistance in the form of grants, recognition of our police force, and structured community outreach through many events and programs. The support of the CPF has enabled the CPD to connect with the Charlottesville community by bridging relations with key area partners. Please join us as a partner and support the Charlottesville Police Department achieve its strategic mission to serve, protect and improve the quality of life for those who reside, work and visit in our community.
