Body Armor Fundraiser

For everyone that knows me, knows my brother Darrin is a Denver Police Officer. There's a new state-of-the-art body armor system that unfortunately due to limited budgets, many departments can't provide their officers. My brother's District 5 in Denver is one of them. I want my brother to have the best protection available, especially in times like these.

If we can raise $2100 from family and friends to Shield 616, we can provide my brother with this new, state-of-the-art body armor system. 100% of donations will be delivered to Shield 616. Shield 616 is a nonprofit that supports local law enforcement communities by up-armoring them with custom made body armor.  All donations will go towards my brother's gear first (we can choose a specific officer when donating), and any money donated over the $2100 will go to my brothers District 5.

Your support means so much to me and my family. I'm so grateful for your donation that will help up-armor my brother and his fellow peace officers with the best gear available today.

SHIELD616 is a 501(c)(3). Each donation is tax deductible.

The full armor Police packages cost $2,100.00 per officer. 

The Police kits include:

– Plate Carrier Vest
– Front & back NIJ Level III rifle rated armor plates (3 lbs each, size 10” x 12”)
– Revision’s BATLSKIN VIPER A3 HELMET (NIJ IIIA Complaint (9MM,357 SIG,44 MAG). Meets U.S. Army Standard for Impact Protection
