The mission of the Laramie Police Department Foundation is to support the efforts of the Laramie Police Department to keep Laramie a safe place to live, work and play. We provide resources to the Chief of Police and the Laramie Police Department to support their community outreach, leadership, training, officer morale and educational programs and activities. We strive to build relationships and strengthen partnerships between the Laramie Police Department and the City’s residents, businesses and civic organizations for the betterment of the community.
The Foundation was created in order to foster a positive relationship between the Laramie Police Department and the youth of the Laramie community. This goal is accomplished through fund raising efforts which contribute to youth benefits and programs; community-support organizations; educational events focused on the protection of youth; and by funding and coordinating events which allow for a dynamic interaction between police officers, youth and their families.
The Board of Directors are volunteers who bring individuals, businesses, volunteer groups and local government together to work on a common goal of bringing together the citizens in the community and the police officers who serve them to strengthen relationships and make them last.
