The Winston-Salem Police Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), independent organization dedicated to enhancing the capacity of the Winston-Salem police to be more effective in improving public safety. Working closely with the Chief of Police, we assist in carrying out a strategic program agenda by generating the financial resources to provide necessary tools, training, technology, equipment and community outreach initiatives that might otherwise go unfunded through traditional funding sources.
The video above produced by Venture Cafe features WSPD Chief Thompson discussing the critical role of community building and positive engagement with our youth. Operation Sweet Reads is a vital tool to help carry out that mission.
