Anonymous donor gifts Madison Police Department $50,000 for new patrol car
MADISON – The Madison Police Depertment received a generous gift Monday night. An anonymous donation of $50,000 will be used to purchase and equip a new police car for the city. It was accepted at Monday’s city council meeting.
The individual making the donation said in a letter to the city, they had a desire to “show support to our police department and thank them for their service.”
City officials said they would like to publicly thank the anonymous donor who was willing to support the city in an incredible way. The donation was distributed through Madison Visionary Partners (MVP), a local non-profit organization that supports various city projects.
“I find myself frequently referencing the City mission statement: ‘Our mission is to provide excellent services through responsible use of public resources, enhancing the quality of life for our community,” said Madison Mayor Paul Finley. “We are exceptionally grateful for this donation and assure our citizens that it will be used as requested.”
