Through the years the Capitola Foundation has provided funding that allows the canine team to attend the mandated training required by the Police Officer Standard & Training consortium. This is a five week training course which certifis both the officer and the canine in suspect apprehension and drug detection.
In March 2017 the Capitola Foundation presented a check for $2,000.00 to Capito0la's Junior Lifeguard Program. This annual endeavour proviides financial help towrds enrollment for kids in need who might otherwise be unable to participate in the program.
We also host the Herb Ross award, given annually to an outstanding member of our local police department. And, each year we donate our financial and physical support to Operation Surf, a terrific program supporting severely wounded active duty and veteran service members from various branches of the U.S. military .
