Who We Are
The San Diego Police Foundation supports a safer San Diego online and on the street.
At the Police Foundation, Every Dime Fights Crime!
The men and women of the San Diego police department respond to the needs of more than 1.3 million people while facing ever increasing budget constraints. Formed in 1998, the San Diego Police Foundation helps insure that programs critical to public interest receive funding that is not available through the City's budget. Whether it's an evidence management system, advanced video streaming and recording, or other life-saving equipment and training, the SDPF ensures that donations to the police department impact all of San Diego. In 2008, the SDPF in cooperation with the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force launched the SafetyNet Program. Law enforcement has seen internet crimes involving children and teens explode. SafetyNet was created to help kids, parents, educators and other concerned citizens learn to navigate the CyberWorld safely. Since 2008, we have brought the SafetyNet program to more than 45,000 middle school students in San Diego and over 3,500 parents and adults have taken part in our programs.
The San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children (SDICAC) Task Force is a collaboration of local, state and federal agencies who investigate offenders using the Internet, online communication systems, or other computer technology to sexually exploit children.
There are currently 61 regional Task Force agencies which are funded by the United States Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).
