The Concord Police Foundation (CPF) is an independent, non-profit 501c3 organization whose mission is to support Concord Police Department employees and their immediate family members; and, to supplement department funding for innovative community policing programs, equipment, and technology that makes Concord a safer community to live, work, and visit.
The Foundation was established in Spring 2021 with an initial strategic objective to support officers and their families in the event of a line of duty death or serious bodily injury. Concord Officer Jason Shuping was tragically killed in the line of duty on December 16, 2020. While the greater Concord community rallied around the Shuping family and Concord Police Department, it quickly became apparent there was a need for a non-profit like CPF to strategically organize that community support.
The CPF Board is comprised of civic-minded community and business leaders with a passion for supporting first responders and public safety professionals. Board members volunteer their time and talents to ensure that the Foundation is positioned, willing, and able to accomplish its mission.
