Welcome to Philadelphia's future Real-Time Crime Center. It's a virtual marketplace, but not for traders, for law enforcement.
The Foundation brings the knowledge and resources of the private sector to the Department through corporate management and leadership training, executive education, professional seminars, and university-sponsored workshops.
The Foundation provides the funds to help the Department keep pace with the ever-changing landscape of police protection, weapons and equipment. The Department does everything possible to keep its officers safe, and the Foundation supports all efforts to ensure that Philly's finest continue to have state-of-the art equipment.
