In December of 2019, the Rochester Police Foundation and the RPD 200th Anniversary Committee held a ceremony and press conference at the Rochester Public Safety Building. Mayor Lovely Warren, Chief La’Ron Singletary, Captain Lynde Johnston (Ret.), Captain Charlie Price (Ret.) and others spoke at the event.
Foundation activities throughout the year, tied to the 200th anniversary, raised $5,000 for the Special Olympics. The check was presented, in honor of the RPD, to a Special Olympics athlete attending the event.
