Thousands of America's law enforcement officers are serving without body armor because their agencies can't afford it.

The American Armor Foundation is on a mission to change that.

The American Armor Foundation

The mission of the American Armor Foundation is to assist America’s underfunded law enforcement agencies in their efforts to provide their officers with life-saving body armor.

Current conservative estimates place the number of U.S. LEOs working with body armor due to budget constraints at nearly 200,000.

ONE is unacceptable.

We’ve provided 41 ballistic vests to agencies in need since our first round of funding was released in September 2016, but MANY applications remain unfulfilled. Partner with us today and help us change that!

Making a Difference

“Receiving a gift that could very well save your life is a very meaningful thing. My agency and my staff could never express how much we appreciate what the American Armor Foundation has done to help keep us safe, while protecting the citizens we serve.” Jeff Smith, Sheriff, Kiowa County, Oklahoma

“This is an absolute blessing and I will sleep better at night knowing my officers are better protected, especially during times like these when it’s already a difficult task just being a police officer.”  Gary Brankel, Chief of Police, Dixon (MO) PD

My department is very small with a low budget to operate under…as the Chief of Police it worries me on a daily basis for the officers not to have body armor. Whatever you can do to help me and my officers would be greatly appreciated.
