April 16, 2020—The National Police Foundation (NPF) is pleased to announce it has launched a Law Enforcement and Public Safety Corporate Caring Resource Center. Through this Center, companies can donate personal protective equipment (PPE) and other needed supplies that will be distributed to public safety personnel.
Visa, Inc. is the first major corporation to make a contribution to the Corporate PPE Sharing Center—donating 10,000 pairs of disposable gloves.
Distribution of PPE is being coordinated in partnership with Axon Enterprise, Inc., who recently launched a global campaign with the NPF to provide masks and other PPE to first responders. To date, 8,195 agencies have asked for help through Axon’s COVID-19 Support Center, representing 1,148,819 public safety officers. Axon has received requests from all 50 states and 9 countries. The Corporate PPE Sharing Center will complement this initiative to meet the demands of more agencies.
