The foundation's primary concentration is on education and training.
The VPCF offers a unique multi-tiered leadership development series to help cultivate and develop leaders at each phase of their career. All leadership education programs offered by the VPCF are pre-approved by the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) for Partial In-service Credit.
