Charlottesville Police Foundation i

Appreciation Banquet

The Foundation sponsors the annual Appreciation Dinner, held each year to recognize and honor the extraordinary men and women of the Charlottesville Police Department. Frequently, many department members exceed the expectations of the public in the performance of their duties.

The Department and the Foundation recognize department members for that exemplary performance. Formal recognition improves departmental morale and helps challenge department members to perform their duties in a manner above and beyond the normal call of duty. It also highlights for the community the dedication of department personnel and the importance of the department to the City of Charlottesville.

What We Do
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.
