As a law enforcement officer, my fundamental duty is to serve mankind; to safeguard lives and property; to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation, and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the Constitutional rights of all men to liberty, equality and justice.

About The Arcadia Police Foundation

The Arcadia Police Foundation (APF) is an independent, community-based non-profit organization that supports the Arcadia Police Department (APD) by providing financial support and by promoting the community and police partnership.

Founded in 2015, APF’s first major initiative was to bring police dogs and handlers, or “K9 units” back to Arcadia after a decades-long absence. Thanks to the support of the community and APF, two K-9 units were deployed. Kruz, Kota, and their handlers have been instrumental in providing invaluable services including:

  • Community Outreach
  • Search & Apprehension
  • Special Operations

APF will continue to work with APD and the City of Arcadia to identify worthy projects to marshal support for. These may include more tools and equipment for officers, supplemental training, and community-building efforts.

Help The Arcadia Police Department

Please consider donating your time, special skills, or financial resources to help keep Arcadia a safe city to live, work, and play. Donations received through the Arcadia Police Foundation help the men and women of the Arcadia Police Department continue to do an outstanding job in our community.

Board of Directors

The foundation is overseen by a board of directors composed of members of the community.
