Brothers Before Others is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charity, composed of Active and Retired Law Enforcement officers. Our organization has its origins in a closed (private) group on Facebook, which gave its members the ability to share experiences that they feel only others in the field would understand. From this safe and supportive environment sprang various initiatives that allowed Brothers Before Others (BBO) to grow to the nationally recognized charity it is today.
Created in 2014, BBO‘s original objective was to provide a floral arrangement (via the Flower Fund) to every officer’s department and family, ensuring that no Line of Duty Death would go unnoticed. Since the Flower Fund‘s inception, there have been over 650 floral arrangements sent to date. With the help of its over 5000 members, BBO has been involved with many other charitable endeavours.
All of our work is accomplished through generous donations from our members, sponsors & partners, and sales of our products. Your support will undoubtedly help us continue our mission of reaching out to those in our profession in their time of need.
