We want to provide $2000 to help support our local law enforcement officers receive Shield616 protective kits. The cost of each kit is $1400 and we are looking to provide $2000. We want to support both the Kearney Police Department and the Buffalo County Sheriff Department. Information below is taken from the Shield616.org website:
Shield616 was formed with the street cop in mind. The goal of Shield616 is two fold.
First, we want to equip every officer with necessary advanced active shooter / crowd control gear. Second we want to provide a support group for that officer who will pray for the officer and family on a daily basis and shower the officer with support and encouragement throughout the year.
Shield616 was mindful of limited department budgets. Not only will all of the gear be donated but replaced every five years at no cost to any officer or department.
