The Independence Police Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization created by community stakeholders to support the City of Independence Police Department. We raise funding through private donations and grants for projects, programs, equipment and other needs to assist the department in protecting life, liberty and property within the City of Independence, Missouri.
SAFE City. STRONG Community.
The Independence Police Foundation partners with the Independence Police Department in providing the best possible service to the community. Public tax dollars support basic personnel and equipment but funds are limited for expensive cutting-edge equipment and technology. The Foundation helps ensure that we have the best tools available to protect you, your families, homes and businesses. When officers experience life-altering events outside the workplace such as serious illness, the Foundation is there to assist the family. Experiencing this community support in a time of need gives officers the peace of mind that allows them to give their best every day despite the inherent risks that come with policing. Thank you to Foundation donors who help make Independence a safer place for all.
“The Independence Police Department appreciates the support the Independence Police Foundation provides for our officers and staff. In our job to serve and protect our community, and the inherent risks that come with policing, it means a great deal to know we have the support of Foundation donors and our community. The Foundation provides critical funding for special training and equipment initiatives, as well as assisting officers who experience catastrophic, life-altering events, including serious illnesses. Public tax dollars fund basic personnel and equipment, but are limited. Foundation donors play a vital role in ensuring the IPD has the best possible tools and resources available to support our officers and the Independence community. Thank you for helping us make Independence a safe city and strong community.”
