The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is seeking to provide rifle threat protection for its deputies that are not covered by our normal budget process.
SHIELD616 was founded to provide all-day rifle protection for peace officers and first responders who sacrificially serve our communities.
In up-armoring peace officers and first responders we are also afforded a dynamic opportunity to provide ongoing community support in the form of regular prayer and encouragement for those who protect and serve our communities. We are determined to be light to those who serve and protect our communities.
Our goal at SHIELD616 is to support local law enforcement communities
and first responders throughout the nation.
In recent years, the atmosphere toward law enforcement and those who serve our communities has changed. Instead of throwing up our arms and complaining, we have chosen to be light by supporting peace officers and first responders. We do this by up-armoring them with all-day rifle protection, praying for and encouraging them daily, and rallying community support.
Why do we do what we do?
We believe that when our peace officers and first responders are well equipped we will strengthen our nation, states, communities, neighborhoods and families.
We are mindful that many departments have limited budgets. Because of that, our goal is not only to provide initial protection, but to replace the gear every five years — at no cost to the peace officer, first responder or department. This is only possible because of generous friends, like you, who donate through SHIELD616.
MAKE A DONATION
When you give through SHIELD616 you will join other friends who are determined to build stronger communities by supporting peace officers and first responders. In doing so, we create relational platforms for the community to rally behind that allow better communication between those who serve and the communities they serve.
Individuals, businesses, foundations, Bible study groups, clubs and others are welcome to invest in the lives of peace officers and first responders through SHIELD616.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.” — Ephesians 6:10-11
Your tax-deductible donation will help up-armor a peace officer or first responder with our industry-leading all-day rifle protection vest package.
At our special community-wide events each peace officer and first responder is celebrated and presented with his or her gear. These events are great moments to celebrate those who serve and his or her family’s service and sacrifice. For your support, you will receive an invitation to the presentation and a magnet with your officer’s first name and agency. The magnet can serve as a reminder to prompt you to pray regularly for the officer you supported.
Your officer will receive your contact information and we will encourage your officer to reach out to you at an appropriate time. Our goal is to create an opportunity for you to form a genuine relationship with your officer.
