Police Foundation: Community Safety Campaign

As our 2016 Community Safety Campaign nears its end, the Foundation expresses its sincere thanks and appreciation to the many residents and businesses who have so generously contributed and are helping us to keep Palm Beach Gardens safe.

Donations made to the Foundation allow us to help ensure that our Palm Beach Gardens Police Department is one of the best trained, up to date and well equipped law enforcement agencies in South Florida.

We will soon be sending out our Annual Report to our many donors. Others wishing a copy can email us at 2016AR@pbgpf.org and we will be happy to send you a copy.

Donations received in the current campaign will again allow us to make grants to the police department for the Equipment, Training and Technology needs of the men and women who work so hard to protect us and keep us safe on a daily basis. These donations also allow us to fully fund our newly established Tuition Reimbursement Program that assists Officers wanting to complete their college education, enhance their skills and advance their career opportunities.

Our Scholarship Program, open to local high school students moving on to college, is part of our Community Outreach effort and helps to steer young adults toward promising careers in law enforcement, legal, and other professional pursuits.

This year’s Campaign included a new option for donors, our Champions Group. Members of this special group are forward-thinking supporters who donate monthly to help ensure Community Safety. Their monthly gift helps provide long-term solutions and allows us to plan ahead and strengthen our work within the community. It also allows us to reduce our mailing costs and be more environmentally friendly. Champion group members get the deep satisfaction of knowing their gift is making a difference in Community Safety. Champions receive an end-of-year tax-receipt making it easier for them to claim their deduction. For more information on the Champions Monthly Giving Program please visit pbgpf.org/givemonthly

Palm Beach Gardens is becoming more of a regional center with its multiple shopping venues, universities, corporate offices, restaurants and sports offerings. As a result, our Police Department needs to continue to be the absolute finest. Through the support of the City and generous donations from our residents and business establishments we are helping to ensure that Palm Beach Gardens is a safe place to Live, Learn, Work and Play.

The Honda Classic
As we go to press with this issue, the Honda Classic is only a little over a week away. Once again, the tournament will be held at the PGA National Resort and Spa here in Palm Beach Gardens between February 20-26, 2017. The men and women of our Palm Beach Gardens Police Department are ready to ensure the safety of not only the 200,000+ spectators who are forecasted to attend over the duration of the event, but also the players, vendors, staff and all those who make this annual event such a spectacular draw to the City of Palm Beach Gardens. It’s a massive undertaking but our Police Officers are ready and looking forward to the event. The Police Foundation is one of the many non-profit organizations that take part in the event and we too are looking forward to a very successful 2017 Honda Classic Tournament.
