Citizens in Partnership

for a Safer City!

The Memphis/Shelby /County Law Enforcement Foundation, a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization - tax id # 26-0350517, was created to help fund essential equipment and training not covered in the operating budget of the Memphis/Shelby County Law Enforcement Agencies.

Funding Overview

It should be noted that over 90% of most major city police budgets go to personnel costs.

This only leaves approximately 10% of budget appropriations for training, equipment, and technology.

These are the areas of concern the foundation will focus on and support.

All contributions to the Memphis/Shelby County Law Enforcement FoundationPolice Foundation will have a direct impact on our efforts to safe guard our citizens and our police officers.
