Testimonials

“As society and technology advance, so must our approach to public safety. The level of partnership that is supported through SHIELD changes the landscape of public safety. Law enforcement agencies and local businesses can collaboratively track and prevent criminal activity in our communities. These types of collaborations are the future of policing.”

"We are tremendously proud of our DPD Shield program, which since 2019 has trained more than 4,000 people across Metro Detroit on how to respond to the worst case scenario of an attack, at their school, church or local business. We know this training works, and having community members trained through SHIELD can save lives and assist law enforcement in their responses"

The SHIELD initiative has been very well received by our community. SHIELD is considered to be the premier law enforcement and community partnership model designed to engage our community in crime prevention and counterterrorism initiatives. Its success can be found in the sharing of information that has caught the attention of our communities.
