Who We Are

The Sarasota Police Foundation (SPF) was formed by city residents to support the officers of the Sarasota Police Department. The main objectives of SPF are to:

  1. Provide resources for improved equipment and training
  2. Foster open, bi-directional communication
  3. Recognize exceptional officer service and professionalism
  4. Educate citizens on key safety/security issues

SPF provides open support for the Sarasota Police Department and its officers. The Foundation is an independent 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, with no paid employees or consultants. Everyone involved in SPF volunteers their time. Funding comes from donations from individuals, businesses, foundations or fund raising events held by SPF. All monies raised or donations received go directly to support the Sarasota Police Department, through the efforts of the SPF.

The Foundation also works to provide support and other resources to officers and their families that face severe medical conditions, whether from injury or disease.
