Angel Armor Protection for Officers in Our Community

Shield 616 “Border to Border”

Jake Skiftad formed a non-profit organization he named Shield 616. The name comes from Ephesians 6:16, where the Apostle Paul wrote, “In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one.” Although the apostle was writing about spiritual warfare, Jake uses the verse to apply to the physical warfare in which officers are engaged in across the country. Jake believes street officers should be outfitted with rifle-rated body armor to help protect them from high-powered rifle bullets.


How to Get Involved

Each year, Shield 616 selects a couple of agencies to provide Angel Armor rifle-rated vests and helmets to—free of charge! The cost to outfit an officer is about $2500. Jake raises money from community donations centered around a “Border-to-Border” bicycle ride.

This is the first year Shield 616 is going outside of Colorado and they’ve selected Idaho’s Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office as their agency. LECI’s Chaplain Paul Verhoeven will be riding to represent LECI.
