What we do

Give back, connect and support

While assisting and supporting many in our law enforcement family who have experienced traumatic, and often life-changing incidents, Beyond the Badge develops and distributes Critical Incident Bags.  The Critical Incident Bags include necessities that are often overlooked such as cell phone chargers, socks, toiletries, blankets, notebooks, and many other items needed during a hospital stay.  If you are a Police Department in Colorado and would like to receive these bags, please email beyondthebadgeco@gmail.com 

We are constantly working to identify and provide additional support programs for officers and their families.  We welcome any assistance, donations, and suggestions.


The everyday life of law enforcement officers, as well as that of their spouses and family, can prove exhausting to even the strongest among us.  Beyond the Badge understands the unique challenges of daily life in a law enforcement family and offers events and classes which provide support and assistance, as well as an opportunity for law enforcement families to connect with each other.


Beyond the Badge supports the men and women of the Aurora Police Department and allied agencies through such endeavors as providing meals at work, food for those working protests and other critical incidents, the ongoing Adopt-a-Cop program, and even delivering gifts to children whose parents are working in law enforcement capacities on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  We provide care packages to officers deployed with the National Guard and Reserves as well as their families.  We welcome any suggestions for ways to better serve our law enforcement families and our communities.
