There is no better way to honor fallen officers than to reduce law enforcement fatalities. ODMP has partnered with two nationally known organizations, 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.For more information about proper vest selection and fit, please visit the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center's website PoliceArmor.org.
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.
