The Oxnard Police Community Foundation is proud to create and sponsor meaningful opportunities for community engagement with the police department, and with issues that are relevant and important to our community.
Pink Patch Project 2023
The Oxnard Police Department has raised over $73,000 for the battle against breast cancer since joining the “Pink Patch Project” movement in 2018, and we are continuing our awareness and fundraising efforts for this important cause here in 2023.
Throughout the month of October, we will be selling this limited edition 2023 "Oxnard Police Department Pink Patch", along with T-shirts here at the police station and at various 'pop-up' events in the City of Oxnard. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to a local independent grassroots organization that provides breast cancer education, advocacy, emotional, and social support to Ventura County residents.
Thanks to the Oxnard Police Community Foundation and our generous sponsors at Stacy Miller Public Affairs, Inc, the Oxnard Peace Officers Association, Boyd & Associates, Napalm, and the Ventura County Credit Union, 100% money raised through the sale of this merchandise will go directly to the Ribbons of Life Breast Cancer Foundation.
OPCF 2023 Leadership & Resiliency Training Event
Featuring Nick "The Machine" Lavery & Echelon Front's Codey Gandy
Attendees will take a deep dive into the leadership principles found in the best-selling leadership book Extreme Ownership: How US Navy SEALS Lead and Win written by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin. Nick Lavery will also talk about the methodology employed to return to operational status. It is also the methodology he uses today as he continues this unprecedented journey in service to his country. It is the battle-tested guide forged by fire-Literally. Objective Secure is the battle-tested guide to goal achievement.
The OPCF hosted a Leadership & Resiliency workshop in April 2023 featuring Codey Gandy from Echelon Front and U.S. Army Special Forces CWO 2 Nick Lavery. The purpose of this training event was to bring world class leadership training to our community for our first responders. Echelon Front’s mission is to educate, train, mentor, and inspire leaders and organizations to achieve total victory. Echelon Front offers unmatched solutions in leadership, strategy, innovation, management, team building, contingency planning, and crisis management developed and proven in the U.S. Navy SEAL Teams. This event was attended by 300 first responders from just about every department in Ventura County with attendees traveling from Nevada and Colorado. Proceeds from this event will be used to support the mission of the Oxnard Police Community Foundation
2023, 805 Hero Walk
The Oxnard Police Community Foundation hosted the 805 Hero Walk in cooperation with Carry the Load to honor fallen first responders and military members in Ventura County. On April 29th over 200 people from the community participated in a 3-mile walk that began and finished at Oxnard State Beach Park. It was amazing to have over 200 folks from public safety and from our community walking together to honor the fallen who sacrificed everything for our community.
This was a FREE community event for all fitness levels and all proceeds were used to support the operations and commemorative storyboards created to honor these fallen heroes including (7) fallen Oxnard Police Officers: Night Watchman Andrew McNaughton (1906), City Marshal William Kelley (1921), Officer Albert Gasperetti (1956), Officer Fred Clark (1971), Senior Officer John Adair (1980), Detective James O’Brien (1993), Officer James Jensen (1996), and Police K-9 “Rudy” (2002).
2022 "Santa at the Station" Event
On December 12, 2023, the Oxnard Police Community Foundation partnered with the Oxnard Police Department to host their 7th Annual "Santa at the Station" community event. This was the first time since 2019 that this wasn't a "drive-through", and it was wonderful to see so many of our friends, neighbors, and families in-person again!
Guests were treated to sweets and photo opportunities hosted by our community partners, the DRAGG Program held their annual car giveaway, our SWAT team distributed stuffed gifts from PetSmart from the bearcat, and Santa, Mrs. Claus, & the Oxnard Police Department Chiefs gathered for family photos with our community.
