Police Service Enhancements

The Seattle Police Foundation supports the latest in policing technologies. By investing in the latest crime fighting and lifesaving tech, SPF is able to help keep our front line officers and the public safe from harm. In the last year we have helped fund a variety of these initiatives including cutting edge bicycle helmets to insure officer safety and advanced bike training to keep both officers and the public safe during protests. The Foundation helped purchase personal tourniquets and body armor carriers, all to help those who sacrifice for us, stay safe on the streets.
