The idea for the Gardena Police Foundation emerged from discussions on public safety needs in our business corridors amongst members of the City's Small Business Task Force. Gene Hale, Chair of the Task Force, shared his experience with the Los Angeles Police Foundation, of which he serves as Vice-Chair. An exploratory meeting was held on July 19, 2006, hosted by the Hustler Casino to garner support from business leaders in the city. Many rose to the occasion and began meeting as the Founder's Committee to establish a non-profit corporation that would serve as the largest source of private funding for public safety in Gardena. Fully organized and supported by committed business people, the Gardena Police Foundation was incorporated on September 14, 2006.
