APF is proud to sponsor Highland Oak PTSA’s Gratitude Drive-thru event, which not only celebrates thankfulness, but also collects food for families in need in the form of donations to the Foothill Unity Center. APF’s mission is to build relationships between the community and the Arcadia Police Department, and we can think of no better way than by contributing to this worthwhile event.
APF Mission Statement
The Arcadia Police Foundation (APF) is an independent, community-based non-profit organization that supports the Arcadia Police Department (APD) by providing financial support and by promoting the community and police partnership.
Founded in 2015, APF’s first major initiative was to bring police dogs and handlers, or “K9 units” back to Arcadia after a decades-long absence. Thanks to the support of the community and APF, two K-9 units were deployed. Zoli, Kota, and their handlers have been instrumental in providing invaluable services including:
- Community Outreach
- Search & Apprehension
- Special Operations
APF will continue to work with APD and the City of Arcadia to identify worthy projects to marshal support for. These may include more tools and equipment for officers, supplemental training, and community-building efforts.
