Outside of delivering exceptional content on a daily basis that keeps first responders and safety and security professionals safer, better informed and more able to protect their communities, Praetorian is committed to giving back and recognizing the service and sacrifice of those we serve:
Grants are a huge and growing need across the public safety and local government community. One of our signature programs – Grant Assistance – was built directly out of this need. To date our Grant Assistance Program has supported more than $100 million in grant awards and helped more than 50,000 municipal departments with access to grant assistance and support. The Grant Assistance Program receives over 1,000 agency requests a month for grant help and reaches 150,000 members through the dedicated grant websites. Offering free grant help and support services from our leading grant experts is a great way to give back to the community.
