Mission

The Los Angeles Police Reserve Foundation (LAPRF) provides funds towards equipment and expenses for LAPD Reserve Officers and LAPD Reserve Recruits who demonstrate a financial hardship. The LAPRF provides limited financial assistance towards the creation of specialized Reserve Units authorized by the LAPD. The LAPRF also provides resources for additional, vital training not otherwise provided by LAPD so Reserve Officers can better maintain their California Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) requirements, publishes the “Rotator" newsletter, and honors Reserve Officers acknowledged by their Divisions and Bureaus ultimately selecting a “Reserve Officer of the Year." These expenses are not included in the budgets for the LAPD or the City of Los Angeles.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Increase funding of life-saving equipment and training, not provided by the City of Los Angeles, for Los Angeles Police Reserve Officers who are experiencing a financial hardship. Increase the ranks of LAPD Reserve Officers.

Through publication of the LAPD Reserve Corps "Rotator" magazine, make Reserve Officers more aware of the LAPRF, its' goals and capacities. Work jointly with the City to increase the public's awareness of the Reserve Corps and stimulate interest in joining its' ranks.

With limited financial resources we are restricted to our "Rotator" in putting the word out. The recent addition of two Los Angeles City Councilmen should help our efforts to get the word out about the Reserve Corps to the public and to City Administration itself in an effort to increase the ranks of the Reserve Corps.

Recent Reserve Recruit Officers, experiencing financial difficulties, who graduated from the Academy have reached out to the LAPRF for help with the cost of basic required equipment not supplied by the City. We have funded their requests. Reserve Officers often request more training. While the LAPRF does not provide training, we encourage Reserve Officers to obtain relevant training not provided by the LAPD and if appropriate we reimburse them for the cost after successful completion of such training. During the Pandemic the LAPRF assisted Reserve Officers with the purchase of BDU pants and shirts which are washable. Early in the Pandemic the LAPRF also facilitated and paid for a Covid-19 test for a Reserve Officer, before such testing was readily available. When tragedy befalls a Reserve Officer and/or their family we have assisted with funeral expenses.
