Making Our Community a Better Place

x_policeassoc2Just before the holiday season, the Carlsbad Police Officers’ Association (CPOA) generously donated $1,000 to Kathy’s Legacy Foundation (KLF) to help fund programs that benefit survivors of domestic violence and their children. CPOA President Jim Willis shared, “We are thrilled to have a chance to make a direct impact on the lives of these families and contribute to making our community a better place.”

Among other things, KLF helps make a difference for children by providing after school programs for those who are being helped at the Chadwick Center at Rady Children’s Hospital. “We are very thankful for the Carlsbad Police Officers’ Association’s support. We appreciate the generosity and support we have received from the community. We would not be able to provide these services and programs for the children without their help and the help of the community,” said Kathy’s Legacy Co-Founder Ginny Scharbarth.

The CPOA is committed to partnering with our community and city leaders to make Carlsbad a safer place and to maintain it as a great city to live, work, and raise a family. For more information on CPOA or KLF visit and
