Shield 616 in conjunction with Safeway is trying to buy much-needed equipment for the Grand Junction Police Department.

Shield 616  would like to make sure that first responders have the necessary equipment to do their job like advanced active shooter/crowd control gear. Plus the equipment is replaced every five years with no cost to the Department. With all the violence that police officers face every day, it is imperative that they have updated equipment that could save their lives and the lives they are protecting.

You can also make a donation by clicking here. All the monies donated at Safeway will stay here in Mesa County. You have until May 4th to donate through Safeway.
