Washington DC Police Foundation: Youth Engagement with Law Enforcement
I’m Patrick Burke with the Washington DC Police Foundation and I’m encouraging you to be part of the solution. At the Police Foundation, we work with the MPD to build safe and healthy communities by funding the community outreach and youth program efforts of the police. Supporting our Foundation will allow us to serve over 10,000 DC youth each year through programs such as Youth Creating Change, Junior Cadet, Junior Police Academy, the Cadet Program, Classrooms to Careers, Officer Friendly and our Police Athletic League. At a time when the relationships between the police and some communities are strained, these programs are designated to build positive relationships between officers and at-risk youth. It’s more important than ever to be part of the solution in building positive relationships between the police and the community, to help both hear and learn from one another. We hope that you’ll consider making an impact this year by supporting and learning more about the DC Police Foundation and our myriad of youth outreach programs. Thank you for your support.
