Lyndhurst Police Chief Announces The Launch of the Lyndhurst Police Foundation - November 2020
The Lyndhurst Police Department is proud to announce that its members are embarking on a new initiative intended to further the police-community partnership in the City of Lyndhurst. This initiative — known as the "Lyndhurst Police Foundation," — will be an organization built upon a vision of enhancing police-community relationships within the City. Mayor Ward and I, along with the members of the Lyndhurst Police Department, are excited for what the Foundation can bring to the residents, businesses, and students of the South Euclid Lyndhurst School District.
The Foundation's primary mission will be built through community outreach - allowing for improved communication, greater trust, and enhanced public safety in the City. This will be achieved by building upon existing community partnerships, which will allow the Foundation to provide resources and programs to our youth, residents, and businesses in the City of Lyndhurst. One of the highlights of the Foundation's programs will be the formation of the Lyndhurst Police Foundation Scholarship Fund, which will award an annual scholarship to a graduating Brush High School senior who wishes to pursue a degree in Criminal Justice or Public Safety.
Additionally, the Lyndhurst Police Foundation has a vision of instituting or supporting other police-community programs such as "Coffee with a Cop, "Shop with a Cop," an annual golf outing fundraiser, a "First Responder" summer camp, a police athletic league, and crime prevention forums. With the cornerstone of The Lyndhurst Police Foundation being the strength of the police-community relationship, we value the input of our community members and are open to any ideas, suggestions, and assistance which can make this foundation a true collaboration.
While we are confident that we have laid solid building blocks for this initiative, the formal establishment of the Lyndhurst Police Foundation is in its beginning stages and we welcome input from all members of the Lyndhurst Community. I look forward to keeping you updated as we progress through the project timeline and with any future announcements regarding this exciting new partnership for our community.
Sergeant Mike Scipione has spearheaded efforts to get The Lyndhurst Police Foundation up and running, and is responsible for its inception. Should there be any questions, concerns, or if you would love to be a part of this great initiative, please do not hesitate to contact him directly. He is very eager to move this project forward in collaboration with the community. Sergeant Scipione can be contacted at (440) 442-1234 ☎ x180, or at email@example.com ✉.
