ABOUT

WHO WE ARE

Supporting the Boerne Community

The Boerne Police Foundation, founded in 2015, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides support through grant funding for efforts to enhance police and community relations, crime prevention and public safety, specialized equipment, training, and cooperative community engagement programs. This non-profit foundation will allow the police to implement programs and further enhance programs that are already in existence that can have positive impacts on our community.  

 

The City of Boerne is one of the fastest growing communities in the state and our goal is to maintain the safety of the community along with building partnerships that will allow the police department to deliver exemplary police services that our citizens deserve. 

 

The foundation can provide resources not covered in the budgetary process and accelerate programs that without the assistance of the foundation will take years to implement. Your support will further strengthen our investment to the community, and I encourage those that can, to support our efforts. Any donation will help make a positive difference. The foundation has provided things such as ballistic shields, ballistic vests, Women in Law Enforcement Summit (training conference for our female officers), Guardian lights for our officers, and much more.
