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!

A wonderful organization that remembers and honors those who have fallen.
My grandfather was a police officer in Massachusetts. He died on his way to work. He fell quickly, on his way to a job that he loved.

AWESOME organization!! Supporting our LEO OHANA is so important especially now. These Brave Officers put on their uniform everyday to make sure that their city is safe, not knowing if they will come home that night. Officer Down is there at a drop of a hat to help in their time of need.
Officer Down not only serve those on the mainland but also us here on a little rock in the middle of the Sea.
Jessica and the OFFICER DOWN OHANA are all doing an AMAZING JOB!!
MAHALO NUI LOA!!

Hello there my name is Jose E Santos. But many know me as Mr.Run2Improve. Ive had the pleasure of getting to know Jessica from OfficerDown.US, I have never met any one who is more devoted to this cause than her. I also had the pleasure of working with her on several projects. I definitely recommend this non profit to anyone who is looking to help law enforcement in their time of need.

Fantastic organization!! Supporting our law enforcement is more important now than ever. So many leave their homes everyday to protect total strangers and not all of them make it home. Officer Down is a well organized, well run charity that does a fantastic job of supporting, honoring, and giving back to those who give so much.

As we work through our country as there are many volunteer groups. Ms. Jessica Langgin is fighting for the fallen and injured to provide for OfficerDown. She spoken to me truly as I reside in Delaware. Yet based in Las Vegas. She reaches out to every state as a non profit group. She doesn’t get paid. 3.8 % goes to the administration. Only to fight for the cause. This country needs to change as it already has with Jessica Langgin

My husband was seriously Injured securing the arrest of a violent and destructive drunk driver. He has suffered a severe spinal cord injury that had required major invasive surgery to repair. It’s by Gods great miracles that he was not paralyzed or killed.

My husband has been a police officer for over 18 years. He has saved many lives by simply being there to protect or on his knees performing CPR. He has brought lives into this world by delivering babies on the side of the road, or in the backseat of a car in the pouring rain. He has also been there when lives fade away to the great unknown by holding them and telling them it will be okay. And watching them fade before him. He has also been the first to arrive once death has already become someone violently or self inflicted. He has mediated people fighting and stopped the crimes they are committing. He has jumped in to save other officers and pinned down a gang member who is hot with a weapon. People on the street who live normal lives don’t see these things. All they think about cops is that they get behind them in traffic to scare them for kicks and giggles. That officer behind them is probably covered in blood, or soaked to the skin with creek water and ticks, from chasing a criminal who just killed someone. Let that be known!!

He has been so strong through this whole thing. His surgery was on Sept 18th. And he is slowly getting around. With a titanium cage put around his spine to line it back up and 8 jagged titanium screws. It will take some time to heal. And heal correctly.

We had our fundraiser because we didn’t have enough sick time accrued for him to be out longer than two weeks. We desperately need funding to help us get through for a few more weeks of his recovery. Officer Down has helped us so much. We just haven’t had the donations we thought we would get. Which is sad!

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!!!
