We are 40! Our Chairman’s appeal

For 40 years we’ve produced trusted, impartial research to support better policing and create a safer society.

Now we’re asking for your support to raise £40,000 within a year to contribute to our core costs.

The Police Foundation holds a unique place in the policing landscape. It is the only independent charity located between the police service, the government and academia. It bridges all three but is accountable to none.

Our impact:

  • We produce genuinely independent research in an increasingly politicised environment.
  • We support the police to create a safer society by researching the most harmful and least understood crime.
  • We provide safe spaces to hold debate, bringing the police and their partners together to share what they know about reducing crime and keeping people safe.

With crime rapidly evolving, our mission is more important today than ever.

Our Chairman Sir Bill Jeffrey reflects on the organisation’s beginnings and looks ahead to our plans for the future. Read his blog
