Multi-Dimensional Police Officer

As the maker of the patented PopShield ballistic shield, Shield Technology Inc. has the privilege of speaking with hundreds of patrol officers.

Below, we have created a composite of those interviews to describe the modern day, multi-dimensional, men and women who protect us every day.

They are really special human beings.

“I might look like the male or female actor playing the part of the macho cop or detective on a TV series, but I’m really not. I cut my lawn and wash my cars on weekends; I grocery shop and make dinner; I coach my kids soccer team, volunteer at school, and have birthday parties like normal families.

“I’m a good spouse, as long a I don’t bring home too many cop stories with me from work. When I go to work every day I am a cop, which means I’m a priest, lawyer, comforter, officer, athlete, psychologist and enforcer, and a dad or mom who wants to go home to their family every night.

“I don’t have a heart of stone, I relate to every victim and the families of every car crash, death, or crime scene. No matter how often I see it, I feel their pain. I even put up with people who don’t even know me, but hate me because I am a cop. I’m good at what I do, but like any human being, I get scared too. I am asked to walk into danger everyday not knowing what to expect.

“I want to thank the people at Shield Technology for making the PopShield. It’s hard to describe, but when I know that my odds of getting shot are greatly decreased, and if someone does shoot a me, the bullet will hit the PopShield not my body and protect my face, neck, arms and chest, I am a more confident human being. When my fear is decreased and my confidence raised, I have a much greater ability to be all the things people expect me to be.”

God Bless America and God Bless our men and women in every uniform.
