The Shield

The Shield is an organization seeking to serve the families of officers critically injured or killed in the line of duty within the Ohio counties of Hamilton, Butler, Warren, and Clermont by providing them with immediate emergency funds and resources.

Our History

The organization was started after a Cincinnati officer had been killed in the line of duty and his family had no means of producing the funds needed to cover the living and funeral-related expenses.  Sensing a duty to care for their own, the Chiefs of Police in Hamilton County began a  “100 club,” pooling their own money together to support the family.

Since then, the “100 Club” has grown into what is now The Shield, its base of support expanding from the chiefs through the police force and out into the local community. Our goal remains the same, to always provide the families of critically injured or fallen Officers with the financial and emotional support they need.  Through the generous donations of police officers, corporations and the public, The Shield has been able to help many officers and their families since its inception.

It’s not all about just helping police officers. It’s about helping family members, and they really take the burden off of a stressful situation for people.



Purchase with a Purpose is about growing stronger communities through home-ownership and investment. The concept is simple: if everyone gives a little, we all gain together.

In this program, the realtors and mortgage professionals at PRMG have teamed up to give back to our customer and our community. There are no strings attached. This is our way to say Thank You and to help build better communities through home-ownership and involvement.
