The Los Angeles Police Department is one of the largest and most dedicated law enforcement agencies in the world. It is responsible for providing safety and security to an area encompassing 467 square miles in 21 community areas, representing nearly four million residents.

As the largest source of private funding for the LAPD, we are passionately dedicated to ensuring that Los Angeles remains America’s safest major city.

From essential equipment and state-of-the-art technology to specialized training and innovative programs that would otherwise be unfunded, the support we provide directly improves public safety, impacts officer readiness, and enhances our quality of life.

Safer. Stronger. Together.


The Watts Bears is a program of the LAPD’s Community Safety Partnership that allows boys, ages 8 to 12, from the Nickerson Gardens, Imperial Courts, and Jordan Downs Public Housing Developments to participate in a football team that is coached and mentored by sworn LAPD officers.  One hundred percent of your donation will go to support the Watts Bears.
