About Watertown Police Foundation, Inc

The Watertown Police Foundation, Inc. is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit Massachusetts corporation formed spontaneously by concerned citizens of Watertown, Massachusetts immediately after the terrible but ultimately heroic events that occurred in in Watertown, Massachusetts on Friday, April 19, 2013, when officers of the Watertown Police Department, with the help of others, confronted and eventually killed or captured the primary suspects in the bombing of the Boston Marathon a few days earlier.



The purpose of our organization is to help the Watertown Police Department, and the Watertown community at large, cope with the challenges we face in the aftermath of these wrenching events.



In the short term, our mission is to raise funds that can be used to provide support programs for affected police officers, and affected residents of the community, including many families with young children who are struggling to return to normal in the aftermath of having their homes and neighborhoods turned into a battleground.



In the longer term, our objective is to build on and strengthen the powerful bond that has been created in Watertown between the police and the community, to make sure we are always in the best possible position to protect our citizens and to maintain public safety in our town.



Please give generously to help Watertown bandage the wounds, both real and psychological, inflicted by these terrible circumstances. Please send you check to the Foundation at the following address:

We are Watertown Police Strong.



Thank you for your support.Joseph B. Darby III, President
