The Cleveland Police Foundation is an alliance of business and civic leaders, law enforcement organizations, and citizens committed to the idea that a dedicated, well-trained police department leads to a safer community for residents and businesses.
The Cleveland Police Foundation was established in 2010 to strengthen the relationship between the Cleveland Division of Police and the citizens it serves through community outreach programs, support for police charities, investment in law enforcement education and training, and funding for specialized equipment to help police officers in the performance of their duties.

Increase public awareness of how the Cleveland Division of Police contributes to the quality of life for all members of the community.
Strengthen the bond between the Cleveland Division of Police and the community.
Provide support to members of the Cleveland Division of Police and their families.
Provide support to families and colleagues of officers who die in the line of duty.
