About Us

Connecting With the Abbotsford Community

The Abbotsford Police Foundation (APF) is a registered not-for-profit charitable foundation supporting the Abbotsford Police Department programs and initiatives not covered by the regular operating budget from the City of Abbotsford. This means that AbbyPD is able to connect with the community in ways they would not otherwise have been able to.

Through our fundraising efforts, the APF strives to support and foster positive connections between the Abbotsford Police Department and our community by supporting programs and initiatives that reduce crime and build positive relationships.

The APF does not fund policing services and has no input into the operations of the AbbyPD. We do not receive any government funding, relying solely on the generosity of individuals and businesses to sustain this vital work.

Our History

The Abbotsford Police Foundation was founded in 2005 by three community leaders – Jack Robertson, Dave Kandal and Spud Murphy. Each believed that it would take a personal investment from the community to ensure the Abbotsford Police Department had the funding to provide programs and develop initiatives to help keep Abbotsford a safe community.

The founders invested not only time, but money. Their passion for the cause and dedicated efforts to see it thrive resulted in more members of the community contributing generous donations. The Abbotsford Community Foundation provided a matching grant, as did the Abbotsford Police Union.

Today, because of the commitment of these original members, and those that followed, the Abbotsford Police Foundation continues to raise funds to facilitate positive relationships between the police and the community they protect.
