The Take Up  The Shield Project is a collaboration among peace officers, pastors & citizens to equip law enforcement officers to fight not only the criminal element on the streets of America but the spiritual spiritual battle that rages around us.

The goal of this project is to place a copy of this inspiring book, Take Up the Shield, in the hands of every peace officer to assist them in both battles.  We ask that you look at the project details within this website and provide backup to some of America's Finest.

"I delivered the books to Sheriff Trowbridge at the Madison County Sheriff's Department yesterday and he was very excited and thankful for the books.  He told me that he had 54 deputies and he would get the books in the hands of everyone that wanted a copy.  He told me before that he felt like he had some deputies that needed to find God so maybe this can help.  I just want to say thanks again for allowing this to happen."

10% of the proceeds from copies of "Take Up The Shield" purchased through either Ten-Four Ministries or the Take Up The Shield Project go to the 10-33 Fund, to assist peace officers in financial need.

Read Article On The Project


"I read Take Up the Shield in one sitting. It's solid biblically, has great personal stories, and is a must-read for anyone in law enforcement or for people who want to understand that they also put on a 'uniform' every day." ~ Bill Fay, author of Share Jesus Without Fear



Written by a street cop, this unique publication compares the various pieces of law enforcement equipment to the spiritual armor that the Bible describes in Ephesians chapter 6. Real-life law enforcement stories drive home the importance of each piece of equipment.

Although much has been written about this well known passage of Scripture, little has been written from the perspective of a Christian who wears and uses the physical armor of the police officer every day, fighting both the physical battle against crime in our society and the spiritual battle against evil that all individuals are called to fight.

You don't have to be a cop or a Christian to be encouraged and challenged by this book. In addition to building your faith, this book will serve as a helpful introduction to the men and women who protect you and your community.
