Our Mission

The purpose of Do The Right Thing of Miami, Inc. (DTRT) is to recognize and reward Miami youths for their exemplary behavior, accomplishments, and good deeds through a unique partnership with the City of Miami Police Department and other participating law enforcement agencies in Miami-Dade. The DTRT Awards Program distinguishes exceptional school-age children who choose to be drug and crime free, exhibit non-violent behavior, do well in school, make a difference in their communities, and demonstrate turnaround behavior. Each month of the school year, parents, police officers, teachers, and other adults nominate up to 1,000 children for “doing the right thing.” A selection committee reviews the nominations and selects ten finalists for the month who are honored at a ceremony at police headquarters in downtown Miami.

2019 Police Chief’s Gala

We are so thankful to everyone who supported the 2019 Police Chief’s Gala. It was an amazing success with almost $320,000 raised for our program. Our sincere appreciation goes to following: Chief Jorge Colina, our Gala Committee, the Miami Police Department, our incredible sponsors, and those who attended in support DTRT. You truly did the right thing for the children of our community.
