SAFER Police

A SAFER law enforcement for a SAFER community.

The Safer and Formally Educated Responders Foundation ("SAFER") is a Los Angeles based organization. It has filed paperwork with the requisite government authorities to become a California nonprofit organization and is currently awaiting their approval. We believe that our police departments need to be better educated, not abolished, in order to protect our communities. 

In the wake of George Floyd’s death, anti-police protests have erupted around the world. In response to this pressure, politicians across several major cities including Los Angeles and Minneapolis, have announced plans to significantly reduce funding for or outright dismantle their police departments.

We believe this to be an  unfair reaction to the well-publicized misdeeds of a minority of police officers. Our police departments need more funding, not less, so that they may adequately train, educate, and equip their officers to become more effective at addressing crime and protecting our communities. A reduction in police funding will only serve to bring unprepared and undertrained police officer to our streets, which in turn will lead to more mistakes and unnecessary police violence. A reduction in police  funding is a shortsighted and reactionary measure taken by our politicians that will hamstring our police departments ability to avoid putting officers like Derek Chauvin in the streets.

In short, increased funding for better education, training and equipment is the answer to the issues facing police departments across the United States, not defunding or dismantlement. SAFER was established with this in mind.

In 1994, the Simon Wiesenthal Center (a proud partner of SAFER) established the "Tools for Tolerance" program, a program that has trained over a hundred and thirty five thousand people in the areas of criminal justice and law enforcement through education and sensitivity training. We believe that this approach can be adopted by police departments throughout the United States to bring about a new age of law enforcement that will better protect and serve our communities and keep our law enforcement officers safe as well.

99% of the funds received by SAFER and through this campaign will be used to provide police departments with the resources needed to better educate and train their officers.
