About the Queen City Police Foundation
For over thirteen years, the Queen City Police Foundation has worked closely with the Burlington Police Department to provide funding for projects to better serve the community. We are continually looking for innovative ways to provide the tools needed for the Burlington Police Department to allow officers to do their jobs more efficiently, with added safety, and with greater impact on community health.

Among the most recent projects, the Foundation has provided scholarships for youth who are interested in making positive choices for an afterschool sport, program or summer activity that may otherwise be unaffordable or out of reach. Through our partnerships with programs such as: Burlington Parks and Recreation, Boys & Girls Club, Sara Holbrook Center and King Street Youth Center, our officers interact and connect with these at-risk youth to help build their confidence, self-esteem and awareness of their community.

In 2012, our fundraising efforts focus on two important areas. First, continuing our work with the Police Youth Activity League, an initiative connecting officers with youth ages 11 to 17 through local youth centers and activities. Second, securing funding for cutting edge technology to ensure that our police officers have the best tools for crime fighting and service provision.

This year our fundraising will be focused on the purchase and deployment of iPads for as many officers and staff as possible – allowing them to operate more efficiently and effectively and reducing the long term cost of technology in police cruisers over the long term.

We are asking for your help in giving to the Queen City Police Foundation’s annual fund to assist us in purchasing these iPads. Your help, whether it be $50, $100, $500 (or more!), will provide valuable technology to allow them to continue to do the great work they do every day in our community. Our work is continuing, but we can’t do it alone. We need your help. Download the Sponsor Invitation and Registration Form for more information.
