About the Calgary Police Foundation
TOGETHER, WE ARE HELPING YOUTH BY CHANGING LIVES … AND SAVING LIVES
The Calgary Police Foundation (CPF) funds six youth programs that focus on education, prevention and early intervention, all with the goal of keeping our Calgary kids safe, safe from a life of crime or from becoming a victim of it.
The Foundation works tirelessly to raise $2M a year as these programs are not government funded, yet play a critical role in building Calgary’s overall resiliency.
“The six programs focused on youth that are funded by the Foundation are probably the most intimate example of community policing we know,” says Chief Constable Roger Chaffin. “The programs are an opportunity for every facet of our community to deliver services that ultimately make a significant and positive difference in the safety and health of our city outside of policing.”
