The Louisville Metro Police Foundation is committed to making Louisville a safer place to live, work and visit, one officer at a time. As an independent, private nonprofit organization—the only organization authorized to raise funds on behalf of the Louisville Metro Police Department—we use donations to finance essential equipment, training and programs for the men and women in blue of the LMPD and their families.
The intense physical, psychological, and emotional demands of protecting our city creates stress in the lives of our officers. At LMPF, we believe that each and every one of our men and women in blue deserves our deep respect for their well being and the well-being of their families. We remain dedicated to ensuring that, whether at home or in the line of duty, they always have backup. Because when our officers are supported and protected, so is our city.
When tragedy occurs in the lives of LMPD officers or staff, they need to know that we’re behind them all the way. Our Officer in Distress Fund provides direct financial support to those LMPD officers and staff members suffering extraordinary professional or personal catastrophes. Visit our support page to give directly to this critical fund.
During the holidays we all enjoy the hustle and bustle of the shopping and the excitement the season brings. Unfortunately, not everyone is as fortunate as we are. Every December, we partner with the Louisville Metro Police Department to host the “Shop with a Cop” program, which makes a huge difference in the lives of needy children all across our community. To give directly to this important initiative, visit our support page.
THANK YOU, OFFICERS. YOU’RE ALWAYS HERE FOR US.
Every minute of every day of every year, the men and women of the Louisville Metro Police Department answer a calling to serve and protect our community. But they’re also neighbors and friends, mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, daughters and sons—and they need our support. Whenever you see an LMPD officer, be sure to say “thank you.” Their tireless efforts help make Louisville a safer place to live, work and visit. A place we’re proud to call home.
