When Families Behind the Badge was created, in the spring of 2011, Wives Behind the Badge wanted to also create a safe, and fun, environment for the children of law enforcement officers. We wanted a place, a forums section on the Wives Behind the Badge forums, for kids ages 12 to 17, where the kids could safely gather, to meet other kids living the same lives they live, as police kids. After much thought and consideration, Blue Line Kids was born.
Blue Line Kids is not only a forum, but also a program centered around the lives of police kids. Through our forums and local events, we hope to create a fun, educational, and supportive group where our kids feel comfortable and welcome and find lasting friendships.
Wives Behind the Badge, Inc. is dedicated to providing resources and emotional support to law enforcement families, and serving as a positive voice for law enforcement in the community.
Who We Are
We are an all-volunteer national non-profit corporation with 501(c)(3) status. Our membership is made up of our Board of Directors, Staff, Auxiliary Committee members, online forums’ members, and volunteers from throughout the United States, and the world. Our programs are 100% funded through grants, special fundraisers, and donations from our supporters and partners. The majority of our funding goes directly back into programs that enrich and improve the lives of the law enforcement families we support.
