Mission Statement


Because over 97% of the Yarmouth Police Department’s budget is dedicated to personnel, there is little left for innovated programs.

The Yarmouth Police Foundation (YPF) will have a measureable impact on the safety of our Town through your financial assistance. Continue to follow us on our web-page and on Facebook as the results are posted regarding our achievements.

Because personnel and operating cost absorb most of the annual budget the Department depends on outside help and resources to support innovated programs to reduce crime and protect our community and defend our Town.


The Yarmouth Police Foundation, Inc. was established in 2013 by business and civic leaders as an independent, non-profit organization to promote excellence and improve public safety in Yarmouth.

The YPF supports programs designed to help the Yarmouth Police Department keep pace with the rapidly evolving technology, strategies and training. The Foundation will provide resources that are not available through other means.

Serves as a vehicle for tax-exempt gifts and grants from individuals, businesses and philanthropies; Does not solicit by telephone or use telemarketers.

The YPF works closely with the Yarmouth Police Chief to develop a strategic program plan. The Foundation encourages and supports the YPD in two main areas:

  1. Equipment to improve the effectiveness of the Departments activities.
  2. To strengthen the partnership between the police and the residents of the Town.

Public safety cannot rest on the shoulders of law enforcement agencies alone. As much as we need the police, they need our support as well. Please join us by contributing as generously as you can. Contributions to the Yarmouth Police Foundation, Inc. are tax-deductible under Section 501(c)3 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.

Help us support the men and women in blue defend our Town.

All gifts are tax deductible to fullest extent of the law.
