It is the mission of the Fayetteville Police Foundation to support the Fayetteville Police Department in providing a safe community for the benefits of its citizens by focusing on:
- Developing supportive community and private-sector relationships for our police department;
- Securing private funding sources for law enforcement projects not typically funded by local, state, or federal dollars;
- Supporting innovative and collaborate projects; and,
- Recognizing our officers and others for outstanding achievements.
ROLE OF THE FOUNDATION
The FPF recognizes that the Fayetteville Police Department, with 90% of the annual budget going to support personnel and operational costs, has very little flexibility to develop new programs and encourage innovation. The role of the foundation is not to displace funding for basic law enforcement, or to reduce in any way the responsibility of the City of Fayetteville to commit the necessary funding for law enforcement services for its citizens. As modern law enforcement strategies and techniques continue to be more complex, the Fayetteville Police Department, similar to police departments across the country, has increasing needs to stay current with crime fighting strategies and innovative technology.
