Philanthropist Gary Winnick Supports LA Police Foundation Community College
Scholarship Program

LOS ANGELES, April 4, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- The Los Angeles Police
Foundation is the major source of private support for the Los Angeles Police
Department.  For ten years the foundation has created partnerships to provide
resources and programs that help the police serve at their highest level and
that enhance LAPD-community relations.  The foundation provides equipment,
technology, training and youth programs directly for the benefit of the
department.
    Additionally, the Police Foundation has a scholarship program, which
awards merit scholarships each year to graduating seniors from the Los Angeles
Police Academy Magnet High Schools and to second-year Los Angeles Community
College District students majoring in Administration of Justice.  The
foundation is committed to grooming future law enforcement officers.
Gary Winnick is the major supporter of the community college scholarship
program.  Gary Winnick's leadership over the last three years has enabled the
foundation to grant nearly one hundred scholarships to students who often hold
down jobs and raise families while working toward their educational and
professional goals.
    Chief William J. Bratton says of Gary Winnick:  "Gary's leadership is
deeply appreciated.  It is gratifying when someone achieves success in
business and translates that into doing important good in the community.  Not
only has he been personally generous, but Gary has invited friends and
colleagues to participate in the scholarship program so the Police Foundation
can help more students."
