The mission of the Seattle Police Foundation is to foster visible and direct community support for the Seattle Police Department (SPD) by strengthening pride in and connection to the Department's mission of excellence. SPF, a 501© (3) tax exempt non-profit foundation, utilizes the generous contributions of our fellow citizens to enhance the Seattle Police Department's efforts. The Domestic Violence Victim Support Team (VST) is a unique partnership between community volunteers and police that is designed to address the gap in services during the weekend to domestic violence victims between the time patrol officers respond to a call to the time advocates, detectives and prosecutors make contact with the victim for follow up. VST volunteers provide crisis intervention, emergency resources and referrals to domestic violence victims and their children on the weekend in the time immediately following police response to a 911 domestic violence call. Donations to the VST are given via SPF.
