Why We Do This

Being First Responders often means making quick decisions. Through our Community Care Program, we can assure that our Officers are equipped with the proper resources to assist members of our community, often times resulting in quicker and more successful outcomes.

The RPDF is important for me personally because I’ve lived in Richland for 29 years. It has been wonderful and I want to give back to the community that has given so much to me and my family. My husband Rajiv Malhan and myself have raised our three children here and have our businesses here and we feel its a great place to live.

President, RPDF Board

My name is Luke Flohr and I am proud to have joined the Richland Police
Department Foundation! After serving in the Richland Police Department for
over 20 years as a police officer, detective and sergeant, I still have a
heart of service just like the men and women who serve at RPD today.
Although I retired from law enforcement, I am excited to give back to the
Richland Police Department and the community. I look forward to focusing on
the needs of our officers and the needs of our community!

On a personal note, I’m married, I have two kids and I currently work at a
local investment firm in Richland.

My family has a long history in law enforcement beginning in 1957 and continuing to this day. I know the challenges police officers face every day, the many sacrifices they make, and I admire their dedication and sense of duty. This “family connection” to law enforcement led me to join the Richland Police Department Foundation in their efforts to help our police officers better serve the community. There is so much negative publicity surrounding our nation’s police agencies, but we rarely see the positive things they do for their communities. Our police officers are no different. They perform their law enforcement duties, but they also serve the community through amazing programs reaching out to those less fortunate who struggle day to day. I believe we all have a duty as citizens to support our police officers in making Richland a safer and better city – serving our community, our friends and our neighborhoods.

Treasurer, RPDF Board

My father always told me that I should seize the opportunity to help others, with no expectations of being recognized for deeds done. So, I felt that being on the board was a perfect way to honor my father and fulfill his sound advice.

Knowing that there is often an immediate community need which our officers are in a unique position to provide, I joined the foundation with the goal of providing financial and moral support to our officers. In the past officers have used their own money to purchase food, fuel, a coat for a child, a place to sleep for the night, or a car seat.

Emeritus Board Member, RPDF Board

I have always had an interest in law enforcement and originally started my education with this as my goal.  After starting a family, my career path took a bit of a detour and I have enjoyed many years in the banking industry.  Throughout these years, my passion for law enforcement has remained and having the opportunity to serve on the board for the Richland Police Department Foundation gives me the opportunity to support our brave men and women as they serve and protect our community.  Our officers need to be recognized for the great things they do now more than ever and I am proud to support them.
