Public Safety Fund donates $3,317 for RAD equipment.


At the Oct. 1 City Council meeting, Jan Fowler, chairwoman of the Milton Public Safety Fund (MPSF), donated $3,317 toward equipment needed for Milton police to offer the Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) class to residents. Councilman Matt Kunz couldn’t wait to try on some of it!

With the donation, Community Outreach officer Ara Baronian, pictured, and Lt. Shawn Johnson will be able to expand their efforts to teach women 13 and up self-defense. For more information on the class, click here.

To date, the MPSF has given more than $22,000 to Milton’s police and fire departments, which has been used to purchase equipment as diverse as a Stairmaster, gun range safety kits, a golf cart trailer, an incident command system, and much more.

Founded in 2007 by local civic and business leaders, the MPSF is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit corporation providing support to the Milton Police and Fire Departments.

Through partnerships with local corporate and individual donors, the MPSF’s mission is to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the Milton Police and Fire Departments for the betterment of the city’s residents and business community. MPSF relies on a variety of community resources to help raise funds to purchase equipment for and provide training to our Police and Fire Departments, including fundraising activities and private and corporate donations.
