Nonprofit Overview

Mission: We do 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!

My fellow police officer within my department was injured in a off duty accident and sustained life threatening injuries. After searching through multiple non profit companies to try and find a way to raise money for my co-worker I came upon Officer Down. The people at Officer Down have been amazing and within 5 minutes of filling out the application I was receiving phone calls and emails asking how they could help. I would recommend anyone who is looking for a nonprofit to use I would strongly consider OfficerDown.Us

When unfortunate things happen to our public safety officers (or their families) it is comforting to know that Officer Down is there to help! Creating a fundraiser made simple and not just a fundraiser, one that is also a tax deductible. I was floored the first time I learned a widow received a bill from the IRS after enduring a horrible year and learning to live without him she got a bill for the money raised off a different site. Thanks Officer Down for being there!

i am the grand daughter of a police officer who spent 38 years serving his community i am also the cousin to two officers both of which have now retired .... i am a huge suporter of Law Enforcement, Fire, EMS, Military . I keep up with the officers that have lost there lives in the line of duty because i enjoy see the different uniforms,and just taking the time to show my appreciation to the loved ones lost it takes a very special person to do this job and if it were not for officer down who knows how many officer lives would be taken and have nothing to show for it from the public at least i get to say may there memory be eternal !!!!! i thank u for ur service and dedication to the job at hand.

To know the backstory of why this non-profit was created is to understand the passion behind the organization. If someone is in need for a fundraiser that is in Law Enforcement, this is the place to go.

Working at OfficerDown.US has been very rewarding for me. I am able to complete miscellaneous tasks to help the organization which makes it fun and never dull. I interact closely with the Director who truly has a passion for what she does. She is very respectful, attentive, and open to new ways of thinking. I enjoy how I can use my creative side to further the mission of OfficerDown.US. The board of directors are also very engaged and professional. The organization provides funding for any law enforcement need including their family which is rare to find. The structure of the 501(c)(3) nonprofit makes monetary gifts even more impactful. I am happy to volunteer for an organization that treats me like family while helping those who risk their lives every day to keep up safe and secure.

I found OfficerDown.US while getting our non-profit group Covering the Blue up and running, we make crochet covers for wounded Officers. Jessica Langgin was so helpful in getting our fund raiser put together. It was very impressive to see the site and I am very grateful for the help i have received from her. Her heart and soul is into helping non-profit groups that are our there helping our Police officers. She is so dedicated to helping Officers and their family's get the help they badly need in crisis and getting a fund raiser set up for them. I would recommend OfficerDown.US to any Officers who may need some financial help with a fund raiser. I also recommend it to any non-profit group needing funds who are out there in support of our Police officers. Thank You OfficerDown.US! Our group is still with OfficerDown.US and I am proud to be listed on the site.

OfficerDown.US was who I turned to when I was in medical need of a lift chair. It was easy to get started and their posts were very noticeable. The staff was very good at providing suggestions and walking me through any problems. A fantastic group dedicated to helping those who serve and protect us. As a disabled officer, I am very glad that this group exists. Wonderful.

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
