The goal of Arrowhead Shield 616 is two-fold: to get local law enforcement better gear and better protection against rifle threats, and to break down the barrier that exists between local law enforcement and citizens. Each vest issued through Shield 616 contains a Bible verse from Ephesians 6:16, which is reflected in the non-profit’s name. It reads, “Take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”
The pictures shown below were from a presentation to 6 local Hibbing Officers, from money donated by Grace Lutheran Church with help from Thrivant Financial (3 officers), Kitzville Body Shop (1 officer), Firefighters Union Local 173 (1 officer), and Jack & Don’s (1 officer). We also want to provide a support group for these officers who will pray for them and their families on a daily basis and shower the officers with support and encouragement throughout the year.
