Police Foundation

The Police Foundation, of Washington, DC, is a non-profit foundation dedicated to helping the police be more effective in doing their job. It was founded on July 22, 1970 by the Ford Foundation, and has continued to receive its primary support from that foundation, although it now has a large endowment of its own. The Police Foundation's central focus is on research - experiments and studies to try out alternative possibilities for policing. Many of the works published by the Foundation have been widely cited by organizations involved with police and legal work and reform.

The premier local police foundation is the New York City Police Foundation.
