Bank of Tucson’s Senior Vice President, Ken Krapf, has been an active board member of the Tucson Police Foundation for the past three and a half years. The focus of this foundation is to ensure the safety of its police officers through innovative programs and safety gear.

As part of this effort, Bank of Tucson supported Ken and the Foundation by providing funding for bullet proof vests, which have a life cycle of only five years. Ken’s community involvement with the Tucson Police Foundation extends into other events as well. Some of these events include Canine Walk for Cops, Thank a Cop Day and their largest event of the year, attracting approximately 400 people annually – the Unsung Heroes Celebration Banquet, coming up on January 24.

Tucson area parents might want to know about the Foundation’s START program – a defensive driving course for teenagers taught in collaboration with the Tucson Police Department. The program has proven very popular, and classes book quickly. Additionally, the Kids Back to School Safety & Health Fair, presented by the Foundation in collaboration with The University of Arizona Medical Center and Diamond Children’s, features safety related items, school supplies, safety demonstrations and other valuable safety information.

Bank of Tucson, Ken and everyone involved with the Tucson Police Foundation are working hard to achieve the Foundation’s vision of helping the Tucson Police Department increase officer safety, reduce crime, generate better community relations and achieve the Department’s mission to protect and serve the citizens of Tucson.
