Raising Capital for your Police Organization

As much as police organizations usually don’t need fundraising for them to get capital, at some point they might be forced to make funds due to some reasons. Police organizations might often be prompted to raise funds especially if they are running low on capital and there is need of more funds. There several ways in which police organizations might decide to raise funds with including the sale and the auction of items in the police department.

  The police organization can decide on making clothing for example t-shirts which are meant to be worn by the community at large. The organization should make sure that the t-shirts are most stylish and fashionable in such a way that they will invite people from the community to purchase them and hence this will help as funds will increase. They should be looking great too. The t-shirts should also be having a positive message which can be communicated through the t-shirts around the community (Mikesell, 2011).

  In choosing, for example, the sale of the t-shirts in order to raise funds it will be more of a risk-free approach since the organization is on a tight budget. This is one of the best methods to raise funds in a police organization since; they will first launch the fundraising and inform friends. If the funds end and sales have exceeded, there will be more t-shirts manufactured and distributed to them. If the minimum sales are not reached it means that more t-shirts will not be manufactured and hence there will be no loss incurred (The Law of Fundraising, 2010).

  I don’t think that it is wrong for police organizations to fundraise since they might be running on a tight budget which means that there are more funds required. This fundraising usually cannot affect the ethics of the police since its just like a community service since the community will also benefit in it. It could not also affect the community as much in the manner of making them sentimental on entitlement.

I don’t think this is what the instructor is looking for with these questions? or maybe he is, it is the quetions in bold that need answered towards the top thanks
