San Diego Police Foundation


The San Diego Police Foundation exists for one reason: to raise much-needed funds for the San Diego Police Department. Every dime you donate helps our heroic men and women in blue get the equipment, training and outreach programs they need to fight crime.

Use the link below to make a donation and show your support of the brave officers who ensure our safety.

The donation is an independent 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization providing support for efforts that enhance police/community relations, crime prevention, and public safety through grant funding for specialized equipment, training and cooperative community programs.

SafetyNet: Smart Cyber Choices®

These days, criminal activity is just as likely to be found on the screen as it is on the street. Your children have access to websites and apps that expose them to cyberbullying, sexting and even dangerous online predators. The worst part is, you may not know until it’s too late. That’s why it’s so important to learn about and support the SafetyNet: Smart Cyber Choices® program.
