Foundation formed to benefit Roseville Police Department
August 26, 2014
The Roseville Police Foundation officially announced its incorporation last month, along with the acquisition of funding for a protective ballistic vest for one of the Roseville Police Department's K-9 officers.
The 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation, which is governed by a seven-member board, will benefit the police department by funding "areas that the city does not fund, such as innovative equipment and training, experimental and/or pilot programs," board chair Jim Faulconbridge said in a statement.
The foundation "will seek donations from Roseville corporations, foundations, philanthropic organizations and individuals," a release from the foundation reads.
The safety vest will help protect Sieger, one of the department's three highly-trained canine officers who are often the first line of law enforcement dispatched when apprehending suspects.
The foundation's release states that it will "enhance the department's community relations" and augment the department's capacity "to safely and efficiently carry out their work" through annual fundraising, grant writing and the creation of an endowment fund.
