The Police Foundation of Kansas City (MO) is seeking its next President/CEO.

Established in 2010 by the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners, the Foundation’s vision is to make Kansas City one of the safest cities in America. The Foundation raises funds that are not available within the Police Department’s existing/projected budgets, or through tax support or other sources. The President leads Foundation fund-raising initiatives including its annual fundraising dinner, A Call for Backup.

The President/CEO reports to an 18-member Board of Directors composed of community leaders in the greater Kansas City area who have a passion to make Kansas City “Safe for All.” The Foundation’s next leader will exhibit the same passion. The President is supported by part-time contractors and fund-raising consultants.

Former Police Foundation Presidents/CEOs have had strong law-enforcement backgrounds and thorough knowledge of policing in Kansas City. The Board is seeking a new leader with similar experiences. Nominations or letters of interest/resumes may be mailed by June 7, 2019.

From our Chief of Police

The Police Foundation is an incredibly valuable asset to the Kansas City Missouri Police department and to all of Kansas City. With their support, we’re able to train and equip our officers in a way that allows them to more efficiently and effectively carry out their duties. Over the last several years, the Police Foundation has provided millions of dollars in equipment, technology, and training to our department, which is well beyond the level of support of other funding. We have been able to use those things strategically to prevent and solve violent crimes. The Foundation’s work and contributions to our department make Kansas City a safer place for all of us, and we are grateful for their partnership.
