Serving America's 5th largest city, the Phoenix Police Department's Family Investigations Bureau helps more than 2,400 sexual and domestic violence victims every year. Victims of all races, gender, and age, visit the facility, often immediately after encountering severe trauma. They need your help.
Trauma-informed care practices have advanced over the years and highlight the need to provide a safe, comfortable environment for victims to recount and collect forensics related to these traumatic experiences. The FIB needs to continue to lead the state by facilitating an advocacy center that meets the unique and fragile needs of victims of domestic and sexual violence, including the LGBTQ+ community, homeless populations, and those unfortunately subjugated to sex trafficking.
With the unanimous approval by the city council in July 2022, and in support of the FIB's mission to serve, protect and mend, we are asking our individual, foundation, and corporate partners to consider making a tax-deductible major gift donation of $25,000 or more to make this $550,000 project a reality. Your major gift will make a significant and positive impact on the victims and families of domestic and sexual violence.

The Phoenix Police Foundation is an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are accepted in accordance with 501(c)(3) Tax ID # 86-1014450.
Currently, victims do not have a secure or private location and must wait in a public waiting area with high foot traffic. This is not ideal as many victims are experiencing a traumatic event and are attempting to gain a sense of dignity and control of their lives, which have just been turned upside down. As a result, some victims leave before ever reporting the crime, which goes unsolved.
The Phoenix Police Foundation is raising funds to create a new Victims Center within the existing Family Investigations Bureau. This new space will provide a more welcoming environment, with warmer interview rooms and a pass-through entryway into the Forensic Nurse Examination (FNE) rooms, allowing victims to feel more safe and secure.
While the 2022 Phoenix Police Department budget is in place, projects like this one compete against standing departmental budget requirements and other new initiatives. It could take an extensive period of time for this project to be fulfilled based on other earmarked priorities. Instead, this vital project can be completed in the short term (Fall 2022) by utilizing private funding. Please help.
