The Daytona Beach Police Foundation (DBPF) was established in 2007 under the direction of former Police Chief Michael Chitwood.
DBPF is a non-profit (501c3) organization that raises money through donations and fundraisers throughout the year.
The money that is raised is used specifically to purchase equipment and training and education opportunities for Daytona Beach police officers.
DBPF does not replace municipal funding but only supplements it in an effort to develop and participate in approved activities which are not covered in the department’s annual budget.
The foundation is organized and administered entirely by citizens and volunteers on its board of directors.
