There is no better way to honor fallen officers than to reduce law enforcement fatalities. ODMP has partnered with two nationally known organizations, Ten-Four Ministries' Armor of God Project and Fallen Officers Remembered's Adopt A Cop/Canine program, to make bulletproof vests available to LEOs who need them and are not able to obtain them through the DOJ's Bulletproof Vest Partnership.
Armor of God, a ministry of Ten-Four Ministries, has provided over 2,100 lightly used vests to law enforcement officers throughout the world. There have already been two documented cases where these vests have saved the lives of recipients.
Currently serving law enforcement officers from any agency are eligible to request a vest (employment verification is required).
Did you know? Your agency's new or used surplus vests and other safety equipment can be donated to the Armor of God Project to be paired with an officer who currently patrols the streets without one. Equipment other than vests is provided to officers or agencies affected by natural disasters in desperate need of equipment.
Created after the murder of their brother, Police Officer Rodney Pocceschi, Jaclyn and Gina Pocceschi co-founded Fallen Officers Remembered to provide new vests to individual officers who cannot afford to purchase their own.
The vests they donate are purchased using funds collected through the organization's Adopt-A-Cop/Canine program, donations, and through other fundraisers (employment verification is required).
