Dutchess County 10-13 Foundation is committed to helping all members of law enforcement and their families who may be suffering financial hardship or illness. No one on the board of directors takes a single penny of salary as we look to give back to those who keep us safe every day. We are very pleased to see how receptive the people of Dutchess County have reacted to DC 10-13. It has become more than a foundation put together by local leaders, citizens and current and former police officers. This foundation is a community coming together. A community that understands and appreciates the sacrifices of law enforcement and respects what they do to keep us all safe.
What is 10-13?
