The impact of the Greensboro police foundation is significant to our police department by providing an avenue for our agency to seek new and innovative equipment that makes our community safer which our budget simply does not accommodate.— Chief of Police
Greensboro Police Department
The first major accomplishment of the Greensboro Police Foundation was the successful campaign to raise money for the purchase of 125 on-officer cameras. Greensboro became the first major US city to outfit its entire patrol force with on-officer cameras.
In 2015, we followed up with another successful campaign to raise money for the purchase of a new Mobile Command Center. This state-of-the art vehicle is used for multi-day crime scene investigations, disaster relief management and even community outreach. It features the latest technology available in these types of vehicles, although officers will tell you that one of the most beneficial features is the on-board restroom.
The Greensboro Police Foundation has also made smaller equipment and technology purchases such as GeoFeedia, a software program that monitors social media for potential threats. We have also partnered with Lucky’s Pet Resort to raise funds to purchase new equipment for the K-9 division.
The Greensboro Police Foundation will continue to assist the Greensboro Police Department in the purchase of cutting-edge technology to fight crime for years to come. Click here to donate.
