The Marco Police Foundation was established in October 2001 when Roger Reinke was the Police Chief. He saw a need to establish a support group for the department and met with several Marco Island civil leaders and shortly thereafter the organization was formed including The Marco Police Foundation Scholarship Fund, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation under Federal and State laws and have been in operation ever since.
The Foundation is a nonpolitical, civic minded, charitable organization. Open to all business, organizations and citizens of the Island. The organization encourages and promotes citizens participation in maintaining community safety, and sponsors programs under the training and supervision of the Police Department such as Neighborhood Watch and Traffic Control.
The Foundation has quarterly lunches with the Chief to honor officers and discuss areas of interest to Marco residents by bringing high quality speakers to educate and help the community on relevant subject matters.
To accomplish these goals, a strong membership base is needed.
