About the Calgary Police Youth Foundation
The Calgary Police Youth Foundation (legal name Calgary Police Foundation) has a purpose to educate children and youth about good citizenship, safe communities, policing and avoiding victimization and criminality. We do this by supporting seven programs provided by the Calgary Police Service and other community partners that focus on crime prevention, education, early intervention and risk reduction. These Programs target areas where the need is the greatest and help us create a community where all children and youth have an opportunity to thrive and succeed.
