Santa Barbara Police Foundation Mission

The Foundation supports the Santa Barbara Police Department by raising community awareness and providing needed funds for three primary purposes:

To provide information, resources, and financial support for deceased, injured, disabled or catastrophically ill police officers, or employees, of the Santa Barbara Police Department and their families.

To purchase and donate equipment requested by the officers of the Santa Barbara Police Department to support law enforcement efforts and make the community safer.

To provide access to counseling services through the At Ease Program for the men and women of the Santa Barbara Police Department, and other first responders of the Tri-County area, as deemed appropriate by the Board of Directors. Click here to learn more about the At Ease Program.
