On Friday, April 21, 2023, Shield616 presented 50 Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Deputies with rifle-rated armor that has been generously donated by several members of our community. In total, the donation will protect 126 deputies who will receive the rifle armor that has been manufactured by a local Fort Collins company, Angel Armor.

“This armor helps us make sure our deputies go home safe every day,” Sheriff John Feyen said. “I once had a spouse come up to me and tell me the best sound to hear, even at 2 a.m., was the sound of velcro. ‘That meant my loved one made it home safe.’ And this gift will help ensure that our deputies continue to go home to their families.”

Shield616 is a local non-profit that was founded by a Colorado Springs Police Officer after the mass shootings at New Life Church and Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs. The non-profit partnered with Angel Armor, a Fort Collins-based company, to provide the all-day rifle rated armor. Angel Armor provides lightweight advanced technology that protects our first responders in the field.

Shield616 facilitates donations from community members who want to provide enhanced protection for public safety professionals. More information can be found online at https://shield616.org/
