The National Police Foundation Network will hold, on June 2, 2011, at Target Corporation Headquarters in Minneapolis, MN, the second of six planned technical assistance workshops on founding local police foundations.
The program will be held from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30p.m. at Target Corporate Headquarters located at 1000 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN. The workshop is open to individuals representing law enforcement agencies, private sector and non-profit partners, and staff and board members of current police foundations. The target audience is people who are interested in establishing, working with, and or growing a foundation.
Participants will come away with a better understanding of the procedures for forming a police foundation; the elements essential to running a successful foundation; the skills required on both the police department side and the foundation side to create a successful partnership; challenge of attracting private support; and the resources available to assist these efforts. Presenters will include nationally recognized police foundation experts, Pamela Delaney and Karen Wagener, former presidents of the NYC and the LA police foundations, respectively.
This Project is made possible by grants from the Office of Community Oriented Police Services (COPS) and the Target Corporation. The Minnesota session is co-hosted by the St. Paul Police Foundation.
The workshops are free but registration is required. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for registration information. The remaining four workshops scheduled for 2011 will be held in Colorado Springs on June 23, San Francisco on September 22, Washington, DC and New Orleans.
