Envision – Enlist – Empower – Encourage
In 2013, the Nelson Police Board approved the formation of the Nelson Police Foundation the goal of which is to raise funds that will be used for important community and policing initiatives supporting a healthy and productive relationship between the Nelson Police Department and the community it serves. Specialized training and equipment, community education, crime prevention and youth projects that are not typically funded with the annual police budget are financed through the fundraising efforts of the Foundation.
The Nelson Police Foundation fosters partnerships with the public to enhance the Nelson Police Department’s capacity to build safer communities by supporting a healthy relationship between the Nelson Police Department and the community.
Some of the Projects &Programs, the Foundation currently supports:
- NPD Annual Fishing Derby
- Restoration of Heritage Police Car with high school students
- Emergency Services Camp – coaching and mentoring our youth
