The Redmond Police Foundation was founded in 2016 to support the Redmond Law Enforcement community with programs, equipment and training that are not currently funded under the city of Redmond budget. Currently there are currently 11 volunteer members of the Board of Directors and it is our desire to expand that number to a minimum of 15. The Board meets once a month at the Redmond Police Department. As always, there is additional work that is done between board meetings through telephone or teleconference meetings and in person visits with members of the Redmond community.
We are looking for individuals with backgrounds in finance, marketing, fundraising and website/IT development. Current projects include funding for:
-The purchase of a K9 unit that will be trained primarily as a bomb sniffing dog; -Specialized advanced training and professional development; -Officer wellness programs; -Temporary housing for victims of domestic violence; -Specialized equipment items for officer comfort and safety.
Currently the Board meets through videoconferencing (Microsoft Teams). Once restrictions on social gathering are relaxed we will meet in person at the Redmond Police Department. Meetings are currently held the 3rd Thursday of each month at 3 pm, Pacific Time and usually last 1-1/2 - 2 hours.
The Redmond Police Foundation supports the law enforcement professionals of the Redmond Police Department in order to recognize their service and dedication to our community; and, grant funds to the Redmond Police Department for essential non-budgeted expenditures that aid, facilitate, and provide for effective policing of our community.
The Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization established, in accordance with the Internal Revenue Service code 501(c) 3, to assist the City of Redmond's police department with non-budgeted expenditures. The Foundation is governed by a citizen-based, volunteer board of directors with all received contributions, donations and grants used to meet the mission and vision of the Foundation. The Foundation is the only organization authorized to raise funds for Redmond Police Department; it serves as a vehicle for tax-exempt gift and grants from individuals, businesses and philanthropies intent on providing better policing and a safer community.
