The Fort Lauderdale Police Officer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, EIN 83-2909957, created in honor of our former FOP President, the late Jack Lokiensky who lost his battle with cancer. Jack was always encouraging us to build community and find ways to make a real difference.
The mission of the Fort Lauderdale Police Officer Foundation is to strive every day to attain our goal of “Connecting While Protecting”. We are able to do this by:
Assisting Law Enforcement Officers during their time of need. When hard times occur in the lives of our officers, they need to know that we’re behind them all the way. To “Protect Those Who Protect Us”. Donations allow us to assist officers and their families during times of difficulty due to hardships related to illness, injury or military deployment. This assistance is especially needed during the holidays.
Promoting and Supporting the Community. We believe in the power of personal connections and the positive change that can be achieved through those relationships. To be truly successful in this endeavor, we know we must strive to do more than simply protect and serve. We are dedicated to remaining actively involved in our communities, engaging and partnering with civic groups, and individual citizens to achieve our shared vision of a safer and better Fort Lauderdale for all. Some of our activities include
Since its inception, we are now reading to over 120 students at Walker Elementary, North Side Elementary and Harbordale Elementary.
It is through this engagement that we are able to break down barriers and strengthen community bonds while building trust and understanding. Believe in Your Community – When Everyone Gives a Little, It Becomes A LOT!
No matter their position within the department, each one of FLPD’s sworn officers have pledged their service to preserve our city and safeguard its citizens
