Because of your generosity, and a matching grant from our Co-Chairs, Terry Straub and Mark Tuohey, we were able to raise $4,277 during the "Give to the Max Day" event in 2011. This year "Give to the Max Day" will be moved back to sometime in 2013 due to the election season in November. However, you may give to this event all year long!

Appreciation Lunch for MPD K-9 Unit
On March 13th, the DCPF held an appreciation BBQ lunch for MPD's K-9 Unit and their furry friends. It was a fun afternoon spending time with these passionate officers and their loyal companions. Each dog specializes in detecting illicit substances such as drugs or explosives, guns, or are used in cases of arson or missing persons. The strength and training of these dogs is invaluable to the Department and to the city of Washington, DC.
Members of the DC Police Foundation received a sneak peek of the almost completed MPD Tactical Village at the MPD Academy in Blue Plains, SW, DC at our April 23rd meeting. The Foundation played an instrumental role in advocating for this state-of-the-art training facility for MPD officers.
Just one of the many great benefits of being a member of the DC Police Foundation!
Junior Cadets Visit Luray Caverns!
On May 10th, 3 buses departed DC with our 5th grade Junior Cadets, teachers, and MPD School Resource Officers to tour Luray Caverns in VA. The students were in awe of the beautiful mountainous landscape in the Shenandoah and were so curious during the tour of the caverns. The students studied the stalactite and stalagmite formations and were eager to point out faces and objects they found within the formations.
