The Evansville Police Department Foundation's Mission:

“The Evansville Police Department Foundation exists to award financial grants to the Evansville Police Department for specialized equipment, education, collaborative community programs, and for the support of its personnel”

General Information

Again this year, The Foundation will award six $2,500 Scholarships. Information on eligibility and how to apply may be accessed on the foundation website using the Scholarship tab.

As technology rapidly advances, new tools become available to enhance the work of law enforcement. However, with routine demands on the Evansville Police Department's general fund, there are limited resources for securing special equipment. The EPD Foundation hopes to supplement departmental assets by purchasing these types of tools.

Specialized training is critical to EPD in order to keep up with current trends in crime as well as learning new methods used by law enforcement. As our general fund has a limited training budget, the Foundation will make it possible for officers to take advantage of specialized training as it becomes available.

Emergency fund
Over the years, EPD employees have suffered from personal tragedy--fire, tornadoes, family illness, etc. The foundation hopes to alleviate some of the financial burdens incurred during these times of need. To date, EPDF has assisted two employees during extended illnesses.
