The Abbotsford Police Foundation (APF) has announced that it is hosting the first Breakfast with the Chief fundraiser on Wednesday, Oct. 28.
The Crime is Toast event with Police Chief Bob Rich runs from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. at the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre.
The foundation has set a goal to raise $40,000 this year to help fight property crime in the community.
The funds will go to equipment, technology and programs.
The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) cannot directly receive donations; however, the APF is a trusted, practical way to support the police and public safety, Rich said.
“Policing in Abbotsford works so well because of the tremendous support the APD receives from the community,” he said.

Since its inception in 2005, the APF has been quietly helping provide a wide range of much needed community policing and outreach assistance not covered by the annual operating budget of the APD.
