Help us honor Detroit's heroes with a Virtual Above & Beyond on November 12th 

Despite the changes and challenges of 2020, we remain committed to honoring the Detroit Police and Fire Departments with the 8th Annual Above & Beyond Awards Ceremony. This ceremony recognizes the best of the best within the departments. The first-responders are worthy of this recognition, especially during this challenging time.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event will be completely virtual. While we regret not being able to celebrate together in person, we are pleased that the virtual event allows us to invite everyone to join us for the ceremony. Please join us by watching live at 7 p.m. EST on Thursday, November 12th.

Our Mission:

The Detroit Public Safety Foundation is dedicated to supporting Detroit’s first responders through advancing training, technology, equipment, community engagement and wellness, thereby enhancing the overall welfare of Detroit’s citizens and visitors.

“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

“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.”
