About Us

Our Mission

The Clearwater Blue Foundation promotes the positive image of law enforcement in Pinellas County and enhances the quality of life in our communities by helping police officers in need as well as providing resources for training, education and equipment to facilitate the pursuit of professional excellence in law enforcement.

What We Do

We are able to provide funding solutions to enhance educational opportunities for police officers, sponsor community education about public safety issues, including police training demonstrations and events. Additionally, we sponsor or convene groups of experts to develop training, leadership and mentoring programs. We also serve as a conduit for assistance to police officers in need. We envision police and communities working together to implement best practices that are informed or supported by research, backed by high quality, professional education and training with access to necessary equipment that results in safe, healthy, economically thriving communities.

Our Strategic Priorities

We seek to positively impact policing practice by focusing our work in three strategic priority areas: Education & Training, Leadership and Wellness.

Education & Training

We seek to build a culture of safety within law enforcement and to do that we believe effective training provides increased knowledge, skill set and growth both professionally and personally. We seek to facilitate quality, evidenced based, practical training and education because we believe that officers must have the necessary knowledge and confidence in their skill set in order to be safe and serve the community well.


We believe if you interact with other humans in any capacity, you are leader and you have to influence them to work together to accomplish a goal. This is a fundamental component to de-escalating emotionally charged situations and effective problem solving in continually changing conditions. We provide opportunities to help all officers and families develop the core actions and mindsets necessary to tackle complex issues including strategy, execution, safety and risk mitigation, mission planning, innovation, team building, and crisis management strategies, and cultural transformation.


Healthy police officers and their families are a vital part of the community and are essential to cultivating healthy police organizations. We seek to provide holistic fitness and wellness programs specifically designed to recognize, address, and overcome issues related to physical and emotional wellbeing of first responders and their families. We believe in the positive psychological and physiological benefits of exercise and that physical fitness is a pathway to health and resilience.
