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
James Pierce

The Police Department supports the Boys & Girls Club Teen Program by sending officers to the Cherry Avenue Club from 7 to 11 p.m. during the summer. There is nothing quite like seeing a police officer on a Teen Night in the Club, smiling, shooting hoops, or riding a mechanical bull to humanize all officers for the kids. The Club appreciates its unique partnership with the CPD and CPF.
