The mission of the Tulsa Police Foundation is to raise awareness and funds for the needs of the Tulsa Police Department that will benefit officers and citizens in the City of Tulsa. A joint effort between law enforcement and the citizens of Tulsa to enhance the safety and security of each.
The purpose of the TPD Foundation fund is to primarily support the equipment needs of the Tulsa Police Department and Tulsa Police Officers, including Reserve Officers.
To be able to fulfill their mission and purpose, the TPD has partnered with Back the Blue 5K to host the inaugural Back the Blue 5K in River West Festival Park on November 10, 2018. This will be a fundraiser event with a one-mile fun run, 5K race/walk, cornhole tournament, and other community events. There will be police officers on-site so you can get to know the people who protect you everyday. There will also be police vehicles on display for the little ones to enjoy.
This will be a family event for everyone. We hope you will join us by attending or donating to this event and showing your support to the Tulsa Police Department. Having the equipment they need is crucial in solving crime and for the officers to do their jobs to the best of their ability.
100% of funds raised will go to the Tulsa Police Foundation. Your donations are 501c3 tax deductible through this OfficerDown.US fundraiser.
OfficerDown.US is a national nonprofit fundraising organization for the use of law enforcement personnel, their families, and the departments that support them.
