What does your business offer that is unique compared to similar businesses?

There are many charities that supply support to law enforcement after a critical incident or death. We consider ourselves the "preventative maintenance" for law enforcement in that we provide the training and education to elevate performance.

What is the most important part of your job on a daily basis?

 For about 2-3 months per year, we get to give away free training to departments throughout the DFW Metroplex funded through the foundation. The appreciation of the officers is like nothing we have ever experienced. It's amazing

What are your keys to success?

There are such limited funds available to law enforcement to further their training and education, so just asking for the community to contribute to keeping our officers safe has been a big part of our success.

What surprises you most about your job?

 The gratitude of the police officers affected by our foundation has been overwhelming. Seeing a S.W.A.T officer choke up because your organization is giving him a bullet proof vest really let's you know you are making a difference.

Tell us something most people wouldn’t know about your company.

All of our board members are major donors, and every dime goes directly toward local officers. We are a wonderful organization small enough to avoid the costs of a larger foundation, but large enough to impact the community.
