During this challenging year, IPSF’s definition of first responders - like many in the community - expanded beyond police officers, firefighters and EMS to include health care providers, restaurant workers, grocery store employees and more. At The Frontline Experience, we want to show ALL first responders that we are grateful for their service and sacrifice.
The family of Officer Leath family and IMPD designated shopIMPD.com as the official source for t-shirts and other items to honor the service and sacrifice of Officer Breann Leath.
In response to inquiries on how individuals can help Indy’s first responders, IPSF launches the Supporting the Frontline: Public Safety COVID-19 Response Fund.
According to the Center for Public Safety Excellence, out of over 30,000 fire service agencies throughout the U.S. and Canada, only 270 are internationally accredited.
IPSF helps give back to our first responders who give so much each and every day.
As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, the Indy Public Safety Foundation (IPSF) works with the community to raise the necessary funds to provide important services and equipment that fall outside of annual departmental budgets. As a result, we are able to make a positive impact for our first responders and our community as a whole.
IPSF supports the following public safety organizations:
The mission of the Indy Public Safety Foundation is to enhance the safety and quality of life in the greater Indianapolis community. IPSF carries its mission by leveraging individual and business contributions to strategically support outcomes-based, community-driven efforts to address public safety issues and the first responders who serve our city as part of the Indianapolis public safety agencies.
