Shield A Badge
The Shield a Badge was first started for the officers of the Arlington Police Department and since then has spread
to other departments. Currently there are Shield a Badge programs in many departments across the United
States and in Canada. The Arlington Shield a Badge program continues today, but due to the rapid increase of
new Officers, totaling nearly 700, we are always in need of more prayer sponsors.
The goal of Shield a Badge is to involve the Arlington community in a common commitment. This is to be a daily
prayer for safety, good judgment, and a safe return home for each officer. This is an opportunity to show support
for our officers and to help them through the power of prayer. The commitment is for one year. A daily prayer
offered up for the safety of an assigned officer.
