How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Our goal is to provide the NCPD with the means to keep the community safe. Through raising money to build a new police academy and training center we are giving the NCPD the ability to train for 21st century policing threats and become one of the most well-trained uniformed police departments in the country. With our financial support we are also able to allow the NCPD to run important community programs such as the Civilian Police Academy and Police Youth Academy that bring the police and the community together in a positive environment. Finally, we are able to purchase much needed equipment for the NCPD through our equipment program. Just this past year we purchased two new canine officers for our K9 department.

Program 3

Return Every Adult & Child Home (REACH)

The Return Every Adult and Child Home (REACH) registry is a law enforcement-maintained database of children and adults with cognitive disorders that make them more likely to become a missing person and that potentially limit their ability to communicate. Individuals who are affected by Alzheimer’s, dementia, autism, Down Syndrome, mental disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, etc. are examples of people who are prime candidates for the registry. This database is maintained by the NCPD Asset Forfeiture and Intelligence unit at the Police Academy and includes photographs, biographical information, and other information pertinent for locating and dealing with registrants such as likely destinations and idiosyncrasies. The REACH registry is an expansion of the Silver Alert System that also assists the Department with a swift response to missing person calls.

Program 4

Police Youth Academy

The Police Youth Academy is designed to give high school students an opportunity to experience the many roles of police officers in their communities. These students from designated school districts come to the Police Academy for a one-day modified academy.
The purpose of the Youth Academy is to expose young people to police work, establish a positive relationship between the Police Department and young adults, and enhance responsible citizenship. The session consists of classroom lectures, physical training, defensive tactics, police demonstrations as well as obstacle course exercises. At the end of the day, the youth have a greater understanding and respect for the members of the Police Department.

It opens up lines of communication and builds trust between the police and the community. Graduates of the academy become part of the Civilian Police Academy Alumni Association. This group of community-minded civilians meets at the Police Academy monthly to promote the concept of community policing and assist the police with problem-solving techniques to improve and address quality of life issues in Nassau County.

Funding Needs

The NCPD Foundation is looking for funding towards our capital campaign to build a desperately needed academy and intelligence center to train our dedicated men and woman who serve the Nassau County population as well as space to cultivate our world-renowned intelligence-lead policing methods.   Our second largest funding need is for community programs. The NCPD Foundation funds important community programs run by the NCPD that bring the police and the community together. Finally, our third largest funding need is for our equipment program which allows the NCPD to purchase needed equipment for the department that cannot be purchased through normal budgetary needs.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
