U.S. Law Enforcement Officers are often not issued ballistic vests that help protect against rifle rounds.
Standard issue police body armor is usually made of Kevlar. This "Level IIIa" vest will protect the officer from most handgun rounds, but not much beyond this. "Level III" ballistic armor includes steel plates that can help protect the officer from higher threats of ammunition, but many department budgets cannot provide this equipment to every officer.
Officers usually must either purchase their own, or go without.
E614 is seeking to change this.
With support from donors, E614 purchases Level III armor and sends it to sworn U.S. Police Officers in need.
To be elligible, officers are required to submit a request form and supply proof of their employment with a U.S. law enforcement agency. To be completely fair, E614 serves officers on a first-come, first-served basis.
E614 is 100% non-profit 501(c)(3)
Founded in August 2016, our mission is 100% funded through donations from our supporters and partners. Every single cent of funds raised are used to purchase Level III ballistic armor and ship it to sworn U.S. law enforcement officers nationwide.
All labor and overhead is donated in-kind.
