The Front Royal Police Foundation's Board is comprised of citizens and supportive business leaders who act in an advisory capacity to promote citizen involvement in police activities, and to solicit and manage community-generated contributions. The foundation's purpose is to help bridge the gap between the police department's needs and its budget.
The Front Royal Police Foundation listens to the police department's needs, focusing on those not in the current Front Royal Police Department budget. The Foundation strives to be the "entrepreneur" in soliciting funds to support the unbudgeted needs.
The Front Royal Police Foundation is now entering its fourth year in making contributions to the community. In 2007, under retired Police Chief Ronald Williamson, the Foundation was formed. Since its inception, the Foundation has funded the purchase and training expenses of a police dog and the training for a canine officer. Under the guidance of current Chief Richard Furr and the Foundation's Police Liaison, Captain Mark Werner, the Foundation is continually evolving to meet the community's needs, from a new police dog to a new speed trailer.
The Foundation is still in a growth mode, currently developing a website and increased community awareness. Other nearby communities are taking in first step at forming an entity similar to the Front Royal Police Foundation.
The Front Royal Police Foundation Board is composed of nine members: Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary, and five Directors. The Foundation Board meets monthly and welcomes citizen attendance in an observatory capacity.
