“Since 2003, Detroit Public Safety Foundation has served as a signature example of what communities can accomplish through public-private partnerships."
Mayor Mike Duggan
City of Detroit
“The Detroit Public Safety Foundation has been an invaluable tool and priceless commodity for our Department. They have been instrumental in facilitating many programs and providing numerous grants without which the success we have experienced as a Police Department would not have been possible.“
James E. Craig
Chief of Police
“The members of the Detroit Fire Department risk life and limb daily, responding to emergencies. The wear and tear on equipment is enormous and sometimes requires immediate repair or replacement so that these brave men and women can continue their mission of saving lives and property. The Detroit Public Safety Foundation has assisted our department without fail whenever a request is made.”
Executive Fire Commissioner
