The Parker Foundation

funding specialized training for lapd officers

Founded in October 1966, as a memorial to Police Chief William H. Parker, the Parker Foundation’s purpose is to advance professionalism within the Los Angeles Police Department by funding specialized law enforcement training and by purchasing the latest technological equipment for law enforcement purposes such as:
  • Gang Investigations
  • Child Abuse Investigations
  • Homicide Investigations
  • Bilingual Language Training
  • Hazardous Chemical Spills
  • Explosive Devices
  • K-9 Training
  • Narcotics
  • Sexual Assault Investigations
  • Stalking Investigation
  • Riot & Crowd Control Training
  • Community-Based Policing

The foundation is comprised of leaders from the business community and training professionals from the LAPD, and is funded through tax-deductible contributions from the Los Angeles community. LAPD officers rely on the resources of the foundation because most specialized training is not available through City-budgeted programs.

The foundation’s goal is to ensure quality police service to our community through the education and specialized training of LAPD officers. Your donation will go a long way towards benefiting the Los Angeles community and the LAPD.
