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.
