The Phoenix Police Foundation was established in 2002 with the intent to gain community support for unmet police adepartment capital needs, and provide financial assistance for department employees and their families in times of crises. Many cities throughout the United States - including New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Jose and Houston - have robust police foundations that fill a significant funding gap between the city's funding and the community's needs. Our hope is that the Phoenix Police Foundation mirrors the impact of these other comparable cities. During the past 12 years the Foundation has provided emergency assistance for dozens of individuals facing personal tragedies, funding for technology needs for the department, officers' equipment and other various initiatives that help the Phoenix Police Department in its efforts to keep America's sixth-largest city as safe as possible. Although these donations have made various impacts, they are minimal considering the vast size and scope of our city, and the dramatic need that exists.

David rolled out of bed on December 4, 1982 and had his career “ah ha” moment. He knew he was going to be an orthodontic technician and he knew he was going to help people all over the country to help treat their sleep disorders in partnership with their dentists. He has worked for some of the pioneers in the orthodontic and sleep dentistry fields. He was the personal technician for the likes of Dr. Robert Ricketts, Dr. Ronald Roth, Dr. A. Paul Serrano, Dr. Clark Jones, Dr. Harold Gelb, Dr. Joseph R. Cohen, Dr. Rodney Willey, Dr. Allan Bernstein, and Dr. Thien Pham. One of his proudest achievements is receiving The National Leadership award for Arizona Small Businessman of the Year in 2004.
