Temple University will no longer provide financial support to the Philadelphia Police Foundation, President Richard Englert announced in a statement Friday afternoon.
On Wednesday, the University of Pennsylvania made the same decision to withdraw funding from the Philadelphia Police Foundation, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported. The institution will also review its own police department, the Inquirer further reported.
Temple acknowledged its past support of the Philadelphia Police Foundation, though an exact figure was not stated.
“Upon review and community input, we have decided that the university will no longer provide this support,” Englert wrote. “Instead, Temple will reallocate these funds to support social justice programs at the university.”
A spokesperson for the university declined to provide additional comment.
