The Redmond Police Foundation has received the IRS’s determination letter approving its application for 501(c)3 nonprofit status. For more information, visit www.redmondpolicefoundation.org.

In a Reporter story last January, it was noted that a group of concerned Redmond citizens approached the Redmond Police Department in 2016 and began working on forming the foundation, a benevolent vehicle to support officers outside of the city budget.

Sharon Brocker, one of the founding members and president of the foundation, said their mission is to support law enforcement by providing funds for essential, non-budget expenditures. These expenditures could include police gear, professional development or individual or family support in the event of a crisis.

Brocker said she became involved because it has been her life’s motto to make friends and build strong community. She said Redmond is a great place to live and the police and first responders are incredible and she wanted to support their efforts.
