In the spotlight for this week’s IACP 2014 Education blog series: the Foundation Track!
This is an excellent resource for police chiefs and police foundation executives, as the sessions will focus on such important issues like handling a public/private business relationship, learning how to work grants into your budget, and hearing chiefs’ perspectives on these affiliations.
If you’ve ever wondered about what exactly police foundations can do for police departments, then the session “I am a Police Chief: How Can a Police Foundation Help My Department?” is a must-go. Many agencies greatly benefit from the grants given by police foundations to help them jump-start new initiatives in their communities that they could not do by themselves.
Also in IACP’s Foundation Track is the important seminar “Mechanics of Police Foundations.” William Cunningham, CEO of the Santa Ana Police Foundation, will share the nitty-gritty details and methods that keep his foundation running from day to day. Stop by to catch some new ideas that might help your foundation run more smoothly.
The Foundation Track offers workshops on Monday and Tuesday, October 27-28, but be sure to come for the entirety of IACP 2014, starting October 25!
