  • Build bridges in the community through Outreach Programs such as Cops 4 Kids Day, Ice Cream with a Cop, Charlottesville Night Out, Youth & Blue with City of Promise and Lighthouse Studio, Sin Barreras Spanish language classes, Pedal Power, Safe Halloween, and the Santa Van
  • Sponsor valuable training programs including training for the entire department as well as individual leadership training for officers
  • Help officers and their families buy homes in our community through our Officer Housing Grants Program
  • Make Grants to the department for many requests including supporting the K9 division, the Crisis Intervention Team, recruiting and retention efforts, and Holiday dinners
  • Show our appreciation to officers through programs like the Appreciation Dinner, Officer of the Month, Behind the Badge series, Academy Graduation Dinners, and National Police Week

CPD Officer Perspective

I have been a Police Officer for a long time. I have seen both joyful and horrific times thru the years; some dark days & rainy nights I have even asked myself if it was worth it, and did anybody really care? Thanks to the Foundation, I know someone does. Not just funding equipment or training or the many other things that have been done, but by letting us see all of you among us as we work. The outpouring of support from the community itself has demonstrated to us that there are still SO MANY good people in this broken world.
