At the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA), we are passionate about consumer protection and public safety. It is that passion that led to the creation of the CSLEA Foundation.
At the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA), we are passionate about consumer protection and public safety. It is that passion that led to the creation of the CSLEA Foundation. The foundation's mission is two-fold:
- To educate Californians, especially the most vulnerable, on how to best protect themselves from being hurt, financially or physically.
- And to assist, through scholarships, in the higher education of students seeking degrees in fields related to the protection, safety or well-being of others.
Consumer Protection and Public Safety Seminars and Videos
As leaders in California's fight against illegal activity, who better to educate the citizens of California on how to best protect themselves from fraudulent activity such as identity theft, prescription medicine schemes, staged vehicle accidents, scams that drain bank accounts...you get the picture.
Thanks to the generous tax deductible donations made to the CSLEA Foundation, each year the Foundation awards scholarships to CSLEA members, members' spouses and children, to help with the cost of higher education. While a career goal in public safety or consumer protection is encouraged, it is not a requirement to receive a scholarship.
The CSLEA Foundation Scholarship Review Committee receives dozens of applications each year and traditionally awards eight $1,000 scholarships. The scholarship program has been in existence for 21 years.
Scholarship application packets are typically available in February and due in May, with scholarship recipients announced in August or September.

The CSLEA Foundation is a go-to source for public safety and consumer protection tips. Our presenters our invited to fraud prevention seminars, including those hosted by California legislators in their districts, to speak to citizens about how to prevent and fight fraud. These seminars include question and answer sessions and one-on-one guidance for victims of fraud who need assistance in how to recover from the crime committed against them.
