VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF'S FOUNDATION
Everyday the men and women of the Ventura County Sheriff's Office work courageously to keep Ventura County safe. The mission of the Ventura County Sheriff's Foundation is to help them in their duties by providing financial support for programs not covered in the Department's budget. Programs funded may include: Search and Rescue, K-9, Academy training, community outreach and other grants awarded to divisions requesting funds for special programs.
The Ventura County Sheriff's Foundation is committed to our goal of assisting the Department with its financial and outreach needs. We hope that you will join us in our efforts to support the Ventura County Sheriff's Office as they safeguard the lives and property of all Ventura County residents so that we remain one of the safest regions in the United States.
