Creating safer neighborhoods by providing support to law enforcement and promoting police-community partnerships.
Police assistance is central to our safety, but without the necessary funds, law enforcement will fade away. Some want you to believe that society can function without police involvement. The truth is, when criminals have no one to stop them, our communities will deteriorate. We believe that through mutual respect and awareness, we can work together with law enforcement to create safer neighborhoods for everyone.
DTB is a charitable foundation (501(c)3 Pending) dedicated to reinforcing positive relationships between law enforcement and our communities through mutual respect and support.
Purchasing the latest equipment can be a challenge for agencies as they struggle to keep up with rising costs. Even before defunding, little remained in budgets to acquire the gear and training available to improve operational efficiency and personnel safety.
Most often, the expense of additional training and equipment falls on the officers themselves. For example, the average cost of a bulletproof vest runs between $600-$1500 every five years. Depending on the budget, there are many items an officer may have to purchase out-of-pocket.
The facts are clear. Not only do police officers selflessly protect our communities, but they end up paying for the equipment they need to protect themselves and others.
Your donation dollars will go towards the purchase of gear and officer development. Every dollar counts and, your support is appreciated!
