Do The Right Thing Program
DTRT.gifThe Naples Police Department Do The Right Thing Program DTRT.gif

The Naples Police Department is proud to announce the start of a newly created Do The Right Thing Program. The program is designed to recognize school aged children within our community who are doing good things. The Do The Right Thing program is a community based initiative which brings the Naples Police Department together with our community, local businesses, local schools, community organizations, city recreational centers, and most importantly, our youth. The goal of this program is to reinforce exemplary behavior while helping to build self esteem. It is also our intent to build bridges of trust throughout our community and to publicly thank our youth for their positive deeds and contributions to this community. 

Who can nominate a child: 

Any adult who has knowledge of a child's good deed in the City of Naples.

How to nominate a child: 

By posting the nomination on the Do The Right Thing link which can be found on the City of Naples Police Department Web site. The child's name, school, the nominators contact number and a brief synopsis of the good deed must be included. DTRT Nomination forms will be provided to all schools within the City of Naples and all City of Naples recreational centers. A Naples Police Department DTRT program coordinator will visit all schools, parks and community centers within the City of Naples on a monthly basis to collect any nomination forms generated. 


Ceremonies will be held at the Naples City Council chambers on a monthly basis. DTRT winners will be identified as role models within our community and a brief synopsis of the child's good deed will be explained. Parents, local schools, city parks, sponsors and donors will also be recognized for their contributions and support for the DTRT program. 

Some examples of good deeds: 

Turning in something that was lost
Helping someone in need
Helping to keep their school safe
Acts of selfless service to include volunteering time in our community
Volunteering time to charitable organizations
Improving school grades 
Acts which help improve our environment
