360ARMOR is a new cop-lead 501(c)3 effort to help Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs) better withstand the challenges they’re facing today. The cop reality is unique, isolating and more difficult than ever. Law enforcement officers serving and protecting the public need to be equipped to succeed in their mission. That’s why we developed 360ARMOR.
We base our program on St. Mark’s heart-soul-mind-strength encouragement (Mark 12:30-31), and we borrow from his historic winged lion image too. The lion (in Latin, leo) is a symbol of courage that has been associated with law enforcement for a long time. Four powerful lion statues stand guard over the national peace officer’s memorial. St. Mark was powerful proclaimer of truth. The serpent represents evil. Our Latin motto is Loricatus Evinco Omnia—“Armored to Withstand All”. It shares the commonly used Law Enforcement Officer acronym, L.E.O.
At least initially, LEOs get training in physical fitness, and some in mental and emotional fitness too; then, all LEOs must maintain “minimal acceptable standards” in each. 360Armor’s approach is different. We see spiritual fitness as vital too, and we emphasize optimal fitness in all four areas. For everyone’s benefit, 360Armor members commit to pursuing their personal best on all fronts—heart, soul, mind, and strength.
Our learning environment is encouraging and challenging. Established on Christian principles of living and working, 360Armor is a 501c3 charitable teaching nonprofit. We are not for Christian peace officers only. We put out solid information on spiritual wellness but we do not judge. Wherever it takes them, both on-duty and off-duty, our members are better equipped to serve and protect.
