Inspiring testimony given in 2015, from founder Jacqui MacConnell, on the motivation and critical need for our unique mission. The testimony was given to Social Venture Partners as a Fast Pitch for funding.
Angels on Patrol's mission is to provide Youth Enrichment and police officer initiated support to community members in times of crisis. Police officers are changing lives, one family at a time! AoP is proud to assist as they help stabilize children and families in crisis and support life changing police officer ran youth enrichment programs.
AoP was founded in 2009, by Phoenix Police Lt. MacConnell, as a direct resource for police officers during their on duty hours. Not every police call requires an arrest, most times it requires a crisis intervention. Officers want to help beyond their official capacity, but don’t have the resources to do so. That’s where Angels on Patrol comes in.
AoP is the ONLY nonprofit helping our heroes go above & beyond the call!
Since 2009, Angels on Patrol has assisted over 14,000 individuals through requests from police officers. Serving the most vulnerable by assisting police officers ensure safety and basic needs are met, connecting to homeless & domestic violence shelters, workforce connections and community resources. Our support reduces recidivism, reduces the amount of children sleeping on the streets, and increases support to victims, to name a few.
Our youth enrichment program supports police officer ran anti-bullying, leadership development and community engagement programs for at-risk youth.
