ONE BULLET.

bullet

It can shatter ribs. Pierce lungs. Penetrate organs. Cause internal bleeding. Trigger a heart attack. Induce shock. Create paralysis. One bullet can end a police officer’s life.

Or, it can hit their vest and do nothing.

Protect those who protect you. Get behind the vest.

A vest isn’t bulletproof forever. It wears out. It breaks down. It needs to be replaced every 5 years. And just one bullet permanently damages a vest, making it unusable. Chicago police officers are responsible for replacing their own vests. At $500 or more per vest, in addition to other equipment and uniform expenses, the costs can quickly add up. That’s why we need your help. Your donation ensures that every officer out there protecting you is protected. Our goal is to raise $4 million to replace the 8,000 outdated vests in use by Chicago police officers.

Bulletproof vests are the most reliable form of defense officers have in the line of duty. The following stories are firsthand accounts from Chicago police officers who have been shot and lived to talk about it.

Our goal is to raise $4 million to replace the 8,000 outdated vests in use by Chicago police officers. As a corporate steward of Chicago, you can make a significant contribution towards helping us achieve our mission. Your donation will have a profound impact on protecting the lives of thousands of officers protecting our communities. To personally discuss your donation, contact the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation.
