Police foundation hosts Friends of the Badge Luncheon
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - On Wednesday, the Valley View Casino Center was the site of the San Diego Police Foundation's Friends of the Badge Luncheon.
SDPD Police Chief William Landsdowne says the focus of this year's event was online safety for children.
"It is an incredible opportunity for the community to come together to protect our most valuable commodity. It's our children that are on that internet everyday," Lansdowne said.
News 8's Marcella Lee was the emcee of Wednesday's 13th annual fundraiser.
Donations benefit the San Diego Police Foundation. The foundation raises money to take care of unfunded needs of the SDPD, including police service dogs and trauma kits for the SWAT unit, which saved officers' lives during a shootout earlier this year.
