The Bellevue Police Foundation will host its’ eighth annual fundraising breakfast on March 31st at the Hilton Hotel in Bellevue. The event will bring together business and civic leaders, and anyone who wishes to support the Foundation. This is an opportunity for the foundation to highlight successes of the past year and raise funds for future donations to the department.

The theme of this event is “Back the Blue.”

The event will be held from 7:30 to 9 a.m. on Friday, March 31 at the Hilton Bellevue, 300 112th Ave. SE.

Funds raised by the foundation have helped provide a variety of items to meet police needs, and include consulting services for the BPD Tomorrow’s Program, a Throwbot XT robot, crime analysis software enhancements, and bomb squad “blast tracker” sensors.

The Keynote Speaker will be Bellevue Police Chief Steve Mylett, who has led the department for almost two years.

The Bellevue Police Foundation, Inc. was established in 2007 by business and civic leaders as an independent, non-profit organization to strengthen the services of the Bellevue Police Department and improve public safety in the City of Bellevue. The Bellevue Police Foundation is the only organization authorized to raise funds for the Bellevue Police Department. The Police Foundation supports Bellevue Police Department initiatives and programs that the city cannot readily fund as less than 2% of the police department’s annual budget goes to discretionary spending on equipment. The Police Foundation helps the Department keep pace with rapidly evolving technology, training techniques and strategies. The Bellevue Police Foundation is registered with the State of Washington as a non-profit charitable corporation.
