I am honored to serve as Chula Vista's Chief of Police and hope that you will consider supporting our foundation efforts. As a non-profit organization, our police foundation provides grants to the Chula Vista Police Department for specialized equipment, training and programs not funded by the City's budget. Some of these programs include K9, SWAT, Tactical Operations, School Resource Officer, Explorers and Senior Volunteer Patrol.
In addition, the Chula Vista Police Foundation is able to support programs that assist families and children in our community. For example, last year hundreds of underprivileged children received new shoes and socks and over 500 South Bay Families received gifts and meals during the holiday season. Please help us continue to support these worthwhile programs through your generous contributions. Every person can make a difference, no matter how big or small, as long as we have a common goal in mind. Your donations, in any amount, can be made with a monthly campaign pledge. Together we can make the difference we all want to see in our community. Thank you in advance for your support.
