The Phoenix Police Department has been a partner of Fuel for Success since 2010. They originally came on board to host student members at Phoenix International Raceway to experience a day at a professional motorsports event, meet a professional driver and interact with the race team. Not only does this experience at the track provide a platform to connect with each other, it also provides exposure to the value of hard work and education to secure a prosperous future.
While they continue this work, they have been active in developing programs away from the track as well. The Phoenix PD leads students through the Police Explorer, where students have the opportunity to learn about what a career in law enforcement entails. Treated as an internship, this program provides students exposure to the makings of a fulfilling and vital career. This mentorship has led to the development of regular anti-bullying assemblies with a custom-designed Ford Raptor Truck.
For our youngest members in the first grade, the Phoenix PD has developed an engaging coloring contest. This fun and spirited contest brings students together to express their creativity, while collaborating with members of the law enforcement community
