Our Goal

As much as Amherst residents need the police, the police need your support as well. Nearly all of the Amherst Police Department's budget is dedicated to personnel services. It would be impossible for the department to keep pace with today's rapidly evolving technology and avail itself of new systems of training and strategy without the support of the Amherst Police Foundation and its community donors.

The Amherst Police Foundation has never rested on its reputation. Law Enforcement is an ongoing challenge and the Foundation strongly believes it is imperative that the sophistication of our law enforcement efforts keep up with the seemingly endless resources for those determined to undermine our community. In fact both the former Chief, John Moslow, and Amherst's current Chief, John Askey, has stated their vision as Chief of Police is to aggressively pursue cutting edge technology for Amherst's officers and officers of Erie County and to implement innovative training and police programs that will enhance police services.

The Amherst Police Foundation needs your help to continue to keep your community safe, to support existing programs, to develop new ones and to sustain our partnership through the years ahead.
