The public is invited to join the Glendale Police Foundation for its 19th Annual Awards Luncheon on Thursday, May 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Glendale Hilton Hotel. The annual event supports the men and women of the police department who make Glendale one of the top 10 safest cities in the United States of its size.
The Glendale Police Foundation (GPF) is a non-profit organization created to support Glendale Police Dept.’s operations, strengthen community/police relationships, and encourage innovation. By attending the annual awards luncheon, GPF is assisted in fulfilling its mission of funding the needs of the police department, especially during tough budgetary times. In 2005, GPF provided the funding to start the Glendale Police Dept.’s K-9 Unit, and continues to cover its day-to-day expenses for food, medical care, training, and specialized equipment. The foundation also provides a mini-grant program that allows the police department to submit applications for grants. GPF has provided over $25,000 in grants in the last two years for items such as CPR masks, a drug recognition expert training tool kit and chaplain uniforms.
