Please be aware
"Do you know what the road conditions are??"
Children aren't the only ones who should be educated in 9-1-1 usage. Many adults use the system for incidents that do not require an emergency call. Keep in mind that for every non-emergency call placed through 9-1-1, it is one more call taking up the time of communications personnel who could be handling real emergency calls for help.
How you can help
As a non-profit charitable organization, the PBGPF can accept contributions that are fully tax-deductible. Donors may request that contributions be used for needs identified by the Foundation or for specific purposes and programs. Requests for anonymity from donors are honored.

Welcome to the Police Foundation
Our Annual Appeal is now under way and we look forward to your continued support. In these difficult financial times we know that charitable contributions are often difficult. On the other hand, City budgets are continuously being cut so the work of the Foundation is even more important in order for us to maintain the level of police excellence that we have come to appreciate here in Palm Beach Gardens Thank you for helping further our ability to assist.

FREE Children’s Fingerprinting
Fingerprints are an excellent form of identification and are often used to help locate missing persons.
The Palm Beach Gardens Police Department now offers FREE fingerprinting for children of the community. The fingerprinting program is designed to create an awareness of the national problem of missing children and helps promote the prevention of missing persons within the City of Palm Beach Gardens.
The program is free of charge and is strictly voluntary. Completed fingerprints are retained by the family - the only record maintained by the Police Department is a log of the parents' and children's names.
