The Newport News Police Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that provides support for efforts to enhance police and community relations, crime prevention and public safety through grant funding for specialized equipment, training, and cooperative community engagement programs. As you know, tax dollars do support the police department. But only to a point. City funds pay officer salaries, keep patrol cars on the road and cover most administrative and day-to-day operational costs. Our police do their jobs – exceptionally – thanks to city-generated, tax-based funding. But as you also know, cities everywhere are severely reducing their budgets. Every department in every city – Newport News is no different – is fighting for those limited and dwindling dollars. Public and private donations, fundraising and similar endeavors can fill these gaps, and that’s why your support means so much. All gifts are tax deductible, as allowed by law.
