Victim Advocate Program
The Police Foundation and CBRPD have partnered on a new Victim Adovate program. The proposed program would exist solely to create a law enforcement responsive victim service infrastructure including accessible pathways for people harmed by crime and violence. Hiring an in-house victim advocate during the pilot program will provide crisis intervention, emotional support, assistance through the investigative process, safety planning, case status updates, court accompaniment, and referrals to long-term counseling. CBRPD and the Foundation work closely with NOVA (Network of Victims Assistance) to ensure evidence based best practices are continually applied. Please consider supporting this program with your tax-deductible donation.
K-9 Unit Expansion
CBRPD is expanding their K-9 Unit with a second Narcotics police service dog. Scent training is scheduled for March 2020 followed by Patrol training in September 2020. Please consider making a donation to help the CBRPD fund this valuable program!
The Police Foundation continues to support CBRPD Supervisory staff with top-notch leadership training. Supervisors will receive FBI Trilogy training through 2020. Please consider making a donation toward Leadership Training.
LiveScan Technology and Video Arraignment
The Police Foundation is proud to announce the LiveScan equipment will be up and running in January 2020! We are grateful for two very generous donations that could make this happen: Byers Foundation and Penn Community Bank. This equipment will allow CBRPD officers to process arrestees in-house including positive identification, photo, fingerprinting, and video arraignment before a Magistrate Judge. Securing this technology at CBRPD Headquarters will save tax payers money by reducing police overtime and providing more police coverage on the street.
Officer Wellness & Resiliency Initiative
The Police Foundation has developed a comprehensive Officer Wellness Program for CBPRD. The program optimizes overall health of employees which helps them best serve our community. The areas of focus are physical, spiritual, emotional, financial and team cohesiveness. The stressful nature of police work can take a toll on an officer’s well-being. The implications of ignoring these issues are well known. Research indicates that when officers’ physical and mental health issues go unmanaged, job performance decreases, decision-making abilities are impaired and agency costs increase. Make a donation today to support this initiative and help the your police department to mitigate any potential problems by sustaining a program that addresses these crucial issues.
