Shield616 Protecting the Protectors
(Las Animas, CO) -- Bent, Otero and Kiowa county Sheriffs and staff met this week to talk about protecting their staff with higher level protection vests. Jake Skifstead of Shield616 told the group he started the non-profit to provide the vests following his involvement with the New Life Church mass shooting in 2007 and the Planned Parenthood shooting in Colorado Springs. Shield 616 works with local donors to pay for the vests so there’s no cost to the officer, deputy, department or office. In the coming weeks, we’ll be letting you know how you can get involved in a small way or a big way.
