PILOT NEW TECHNOLOGIES
THE POLICE FOUNDATION PILOTS NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND PROVIDES
RESOURCES AND SERVICES TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC AND THE POLICE.
In the 1970s, the Police Foundation purchased the first bullet-resistant vests for
18,000 service members before they became standard issue for the Department.
Recently, the Foundation has continued this legacy by purchasing 550 new lightweight detective vests for the Detectives Vest Pilot Program.
The Police Foundation has also piloted a new Neighborhood Policing app that helps
the NYPD identify, log, track, and address community complaints. The app creates a
mobile case management system for police, allowing officers to view the full history
of a complaint.
The New York City Police Foundation has played a
critical role in advancing innovative new programs
and supporting the NYPD for 50 years.
