We support the efforts of the Bellevue Police Department through grants for training and the purchase of specialized equipment.
The Bellevue Police Foundation supports Bellevue Police Department initiatives and programs that the city cannot readily fund. Less than 2% of the police department's annual budget goes to discretionary spending on equipment. The foundation helps the Bellevue Police Department keep pace with rapidly evolving technology, training techniques, and strategies.
The Bellevue Police Foundation is the only organization authorized to raise funds on behalf of the Bellevue Police Department.
