The Riverton community has formed a non-profit (501 C-3) organization called the Riverton Police Foundation. The foundation raises money to assist the police department with items outside the normal budget, and to provide financial assistance to the children of officers and staff of the department. The Foundation holds a golf tournament annually to raise funds, as well as various fundraisers throughout the year including raffles and concerts.
Contributions to the department include the purchase of weightlifting equipment, training and equipment for the horse mounted unit, and assistance with the purchase of new body armor. The Riverton Explorer Post is funded entirely through the Police Foundation.
To assist the Foundation, please contact John Snell (a former Riverton Chief of Police) at (307) 856-5033.
