Making A Difference

From fuel for patrol cars to uniforms and equipment, police departments need funding. Without the foundation’s help, our police officers would not have the tools we help financially, such as the Arcadia Police Department’s K-9 Program.

Meet K-9 “Kruz”

Suspects often flee or hide from officers after committing a crime. Tragically, some of these suspects wait for the officers to get close to where they hide before inflicting violence on them. With the help of dogs, officers are able to send them into these dangerous areas where they can quickly locate and subdue the suspect.

Dogs are also extremely helpful in locating evidence from crimes like residential burglaries, lost or missing children, and dangerous drugs.

Kota is one of two K-9’s supported by the Arcadia Police Foundation.

A Message From The Chief of Police

The assistance we receive from the Arcadia Police Foundation allows our police department to further expand our capabilities to enhance our service to the community. 

By providing funds used for training, equipment and programs, the Foundation also promoted the welfare of the men and women who proudly serve the city of Arcadia. On behalf of the Arcadia Police Department, we are thankful for the residents, business owners and gracious donors who support the Foundation.
