Raises Additional $1.5 Million From Community Partners
Kansas City, MO – The DeBruce Foundation tonight released the following statement:
We believe in Kansas City and we want to be part of the solution for the future good of our community. Both citizens and police agree body cameras are needed and a good next step, but there is not enough funding. It is time for foundations and business leaders to take action. That’s why The DeBruce Foundation is stepping up to lead this charge along with the Police Foundation.
With the lead donation from The DeBruce Foundation of $1 million dollars, and the generosity of the business and philanthropic community, we are pleased to announce we have secured the $2.5 million needed to purchase body cameras for the KCPD.
UPDATE: Additional funds are still needed to support training, data maintenance and sustain the body camera program. If you would like to be part of the process to help ensure implementation and ongoing success, you can donate through the Police Foundation of Kansas City:
