The El Paso Police Department is pleased to join forces with the El Paso police foundation. Together our two organizations will continue working hard to prevent crime and improve the quality of life for the citizens of our great City. Maintaining the distinction of the “Safest Large City in the United States” requires great effort on the part of the officers of the El Paso Police Department and the El Paso Police Foundation as a whole.
As a testament to our commitment to service, the El Paso Police Department has received national recognition for many if its innovative programs. Our Police Department was the 2004 recipient of the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s Community Policing Award, acknowledging a very significant reduction in crime and the Department’s well-established partnerships within the community. In 2005, our Police Department also received the National Crime Prevention Council Award for Excellence in Policing and was again named one of the “Six Safer Cities in the United States”. In 2010, El Paso was named by the Morgan Printo Press as “The Safest Large City in the United States.
We cannot, however rest on our laurels. It is imperative that we continue to work together, pioneering innovations in crime fighting and keep pace the ever-changing technologies. The El Paso Police foundation recognizes this need and was created for the distinct purpose of assisting the El Paso Police Department in meetings its public safety obligations. Through its financial support, The El Paso Police Foundation allows the El Paso Police Department to create and maintain alternative programs and innovations that would not otherwise be provided through the normal budgetary process.
The El Paso Police Foundation is a critical partner in the never-ending fight to keep our City safe and improve the quality of life in our community. I encourage you to support the El Paso Police Foundation and to join our efforts in providing the best public safety to our community.

What Is The El Paso Police Foundation?
The El Paso Police Foundation represents a public/private partnership designed to assist our Police Department in building positive relationships within the community, improving officer proficiency and safety, and augmenting law enforcement equipment and technology in order to enhance public safety and quality of life within the City of El Paso.
