The HSDF is a Veteran run, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization voluntarily staffed helping save the lives of first responders, police canines, military police and the community. We take a tremendous amount of pride in seeing this mission progress through the continuous support of our community, near and far!
Violent assaults on Police Officers, as well as Fire and EMS Professionals, continue to occur across the country. -HSDF sponsors effective non-violent survival tactics to compliment Law Enforcement defensive tactics and provide a foundation for EMS Professionals as they keep everyone safe.
Most agency’s K-9 units rely solely on donations to purchase ballistic protection and other equipment for their canine officers. Without these donations, canines will go without lifesaving protection.
-The HSDF sponsors ballistic vests to police canines in need, as well as send care packages to police canines injured in the line of duty.
Monetary donations are greatly appreciated to help us achieve these goals. Because our team is voluntarily staffed, 100% of all proceeds go directly to our mission and will immediately aide in our mission! Check out our donation page to see exactly how your donation will benefit your local heroes!
"I have long been a supporter of Law Enforcement organizations such as “C. O. P.S.” and “Officer Down Memorial” (and there is a far too great need for the work being done by these groups). I was recently one of many officers/beneficiaries of the great work being done by this organization and , I realized after three days of training that if the “Heroes Self Defense Foundation” succeeds, and continues to offer such training to Officers then maybe there wouldn’t be such a need for organizations that help take care of families that have lost someone they love in the line of duty.
“Hero Self Defense Foundation” is an organization that is striving equip officers with the knowledge and tactics necessary to go home at the end of every shift! This is a worthy cause. I believe in and support the work they are doing! Thank You."
Your generous donation will help us enable our mission to help those in need. Together, we can make a difference.
