Grant Funding Program

From time to time, the Albemarle County Police Department and its officers, need or want training, equipment, supplies and/or support that is not included in the County Police budget. The Foundation is pleased to supplement what the county budget provides to ensure a professional, highly educated and trained organization, equipped to prevent crime and enhance the overall safety of our community. In February 2020, the Foundation implemented a "Grant Funding Program" to streamline the process for funding requests, assure appropriate Department approval and to realize consistently with Foundation goals and objectives.

Any County police officer, unit or the entire Department may apply for a grant as long as the request is consistent with our funding priorities and has supervisory approval. The funding priorities are: Training/Professional Development, Equipment/Technology, Community Relation/Awareness and Visibility Recognition, Morale, Officer Support, and Recruitment

The Albemarle County Police Foundation is committed to the ideal that a dedicated, well-trained, and modernly-equipped police department leads to a safer community. The ACPD Foundation helps to supplement the Police Department’s training budget, allowing for highly specialized tactical and communications trainings for advanced education.

Our SWAT team has received some of the best, advanced tactical training in the country to better protect our officers, volunteers, and citizens during real-life situations. With the rise of “active shooter” events in recent years, it is reassuring to know that our officers are well equipped to handle such potentially devastating situations.

From soft skills communication training, and intense SWAT team tactical training, to Auxiliary Police uniforms, the ACPD Foundation helps aid in providing our police department with the skills and equipment they need to perform at their highest level.
