COVID-19 Response

When things are at their toughest, New Yorkers always step up to the challenge. It’s amazing to see the tremendous outpouring across New York City and beyond to help protect our officers on the front lines.

Despite these unprecedented times, the men and women of the Department will continue to answer the call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It’s essential we support them.
Susan Birnbaum, President & CEO

Over the last several months, the New York City Police Foundation has been able to help address the ongoing and changing needs of the Department as they bravely respond to the COVID-19 crisis. Thanks to the support of our generous donors, the Foundation has provided the NYPD with protective equipment such as masks, gloves and hand sanitizer, and coordinated the delivery of meals to precincts. The Foundation’s support also extended beyond supplies to provide hotel rooms for officers who needed to isolate themselves from family members at greater risk to complications from the coronavirus. We are grateful to have been in a position to help and look forward to answering the call, whatever may be needed in the future.

The Police Foundation is actively raising more funds and seeking donations to continue to meet its mission of supporting the NYPD during this crisis and beyond.

This equipment will help keep our officers physically safe. But beyond that, it sends them a clear message - that their unwavering commitment to protecting people is deeply appreciated.
