The Public Safety Outreach Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization. It support activities and programs designed to build enhance trust between communities and public safety agencies. In times of need, we reach out and provide needed support to our most vulnerable communities. We must look at ways to improve communication and interactions with each other, having mutual respect, resulting in positive relationships. Your donations will help continue programs identified by the Communities of Trust Committee (www.communitiesoftrust.com) resulting in communities working together, youth considering careers in public safety and parents engaged with their children and public safety agencies. Help us make a difference. Make your donation today.
Programs established and supported by the Public Safety Outreach Foundation are recommended by the Communities of Trust Committee, a diverse group consisting of community leaders and organizations, faith groups, citizens and public safety agencies and approved by the Foundation. Through public, private partnerships and grants, we are able to implement programs that help improve the social and economic conditions of our communities, especially our youth. Since its inception, the Communities of Trust Committee has hosted many events. The Public Safety Days engages youth with public safety employees, specially law enforcement, in a day of fun (games, face painting, rides). Additionally, forums are held to educate the community on public safety programs, career opportunities and how to effectively engage with law enforcement. The Public Safety Career Days are designed to inform students of careers in public safety.
. We are providing funding and supplies to make cloth masks and face shields for our health workers and the communities.
Due to COVID-19, there is a greater need for personal hygiene items at the local food banks. Fairfax County has eight district police stations. We have placed a donation bin in the lobby of each of these stations where community members can donate cleaning supplies, masks, and personal hygiene items. This effort is ongoing. Thank you, in advance, for supporting this effort.
