Nonprofit Overview

Mission: We do ONLY LEO related fundraisers. You can start one or we can. We're here to help. Recent tragedies of officers killed in action, and the outpouring of public support as they are reported in the media, have brought to light a problem – there is no easy way for people to come together online to provide the immediate financial support for their families. Many fundraisers require people to drive to a bank to provide a faceless donation, which just isn’t the way to go in the 21st century. So a group of us came together, along with a technology team, to spend the time and money to fix this both now and for the future. While much press is (appropriately and deservedly!) given to officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty, there are countless others who are injured and who also need help as they go through the recovery process. And there are families who need help for years as they continue to piece their lives together. We support all who have served, including their families, regardless of injury and without a time limit. The community is here for you always. OfficerDown.us is a registered nonprofit with a mission to provide a place where people can reach out to help those who have spent their lives helping others. “To protect and serve” isn’t just a job, and those who dedicate their lives to live by the code are our family. It’s up to us to come together as a “crowd” to support the officers, the families and the departments who sacrifice so much to help others and preserve our community every day, every night.

Officerdown.us has been incredibly helpful in raising funds for our law enforcement family members. They helped raise funds for a coworkers husband and 2 small boys when she passed away unexpectedly and are now helping raise funds for another coworker whose baby daughter needs a bone marrow transplant. Please donate!

We have been able to do some amazing things for those in our LVMPD family through the officer down site. I personally can attest to a fundraiser I organized on OfficerDown that netted $11k in one week and when the family needed money ASAP for specialized treatment out of state that needed to commence immediately; Jessica personally delivered a check to the hospital room the next day!

Officerdown.us is dedicated by supporting and assisting any and all law enforcement related incident simply by starting a fundraiser via Officerdown.us. Jessica Langgin, the administrator of Officerdown.us, has made her main goal for all law enforcement agencies to use this website anytime a fundraiser is needed for one of their own is in need. Officerdown.us is a non-profit 501(c) and is a great source for funds to be collected fast, easy, and tax-deductible. Not only is Officerdown.us for officers, it extends for family members, civilian employees and incidents that occurred off-duty. Jessica Langgin makes herself available anytime day or night. She believes this organization is important for all law enforcement agencies and that we should come together during trying times. If you know of any anyone who is in need of assistance and it's law enforcement related, please refer them to Officerdown.us You will not be sorry!!!

I have a good grasp on what our law enforcement goes thru, as I am a mother of a 17 year police officer. My son wanted to be a cop since he was 4 years old. He worked hard to get there and works harder to stay in such a un appreciated career. I worry every minute of every day and will till he is finished with his career in law enforcement. I hurt as they all do when another officer is taken by such a meaningless way and leaves another family hurting but remain proud. That is the meaning of the thin blue line and I am happy to support and will wear my bracelet with pride.

Officer Down is amazing. I am a retired police officer who was shot in line of duty and my father was a police officer and was murdered when I was twelve. when I heard about all the things Officer Down does for this family of blue I give them hats off
Give them your support. We need to help those officers and families who are going through a lot right now
