A safe city that is good for people, good for business, and good for life.
The mission of the Houston Police Foundation is to foster visible and direct community support for the Houston Police Department by strengthening pride in and connection to the Department's mission of excellence.
Role of the Houston Police Foundation
The Houston Police Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation formed by local business leaders to support projects of the Houston Police Department. Donations made by individuals and companies fund special programs, officer safety, training, equipment, and new technology -- none of which would be feasible under the City budget. Approximately 96% of HPD's annual budget goes to pay officers and other department personnel.
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 Houston to commit the necessary funding for law enforcement services for its citizens. However, as modern law enforcement tasks continue to become more complex, the Houston Police Department, similar to police departments across the country, has increasing needs to stay current in training, technology and equipment, and communication and partnership efforts with the community.
