"My life might be different if I was wearing this type of gear the day I was shot in the line of duty." Former Deputy Stone

"Our soft armor really only protects against pistol rounds, 45, 9 mm, 10 mm/.40 etc. Doesn't even do all that great stuff against stab attacks. These plates will stop all of those." Officer Brown, Golden Police Department


We exist to make Kingdom impacts by protecting and serving those who protect and serve.

Background Statement

As a Colorado Springs police officer for over 14 years Jake Skifstad experienced first-hand the needs that street officers and first responders face every day. The lack of appropriate protective gear led him to find his true calling and passion by founding SHIELD616.

SHIELD616 was founded to provide all-day rifle protection for first responders who sacrificially serve our communities. Jake's passion is a calling to meet the needs of each agency by using his voice, experiences and wisdom to bring attention to these needs and funding them.

Your donation can help bless a first responder in need!
