It is my pleasure to offer this letter of support for the Round Rock Police Foundation. This important organization was created to assist the Round Rock Police Department by providing resources above and beyond what we receive from the general public. More specifically, the Foundation helps the Department acquire the training, materials, and equipment we need to remain a highly progressive law enforcement agency.
The Round Rock Police Foundation is more than just a funding source. The board of directors works closely with my office to understand Department needs and to identify effective public safety strategies. The Foundation strengthens partnerships between the Department and other programs, such as the Junior Police Academy, Wives of Police Officers, Victim Services, Seniors and Law Enforcement Together, Citizens Police Academy, Blue Santa, National Night Out, and the annual, back-to-school Kutz4Kidz event. The Foundation also encourages excellence in policing by recognizing outstanding achievement.
The Round Rock Police Services Department is nationally recognized as a leader in law enforcement. The City of Round Rock and our community have made a significate investment in maintaining our commitment to policing excellence. The Round Rock Police Foundation is a key partner in our quest to take policing to the next level in Round Rock. I encourage you to explore the Foundation through its web site, and consider how you might support this worthy cause.
Allen J. Banks
