Special Insurance and Retirement Programs for Protecting our Law Enforcement Personnel and Their Families.

Committees

Mission Statement

We will encourage, enable, and vocally stand up for our men and women in blue because we believe that law enforcement officers and their families are critical to the freedoms we cherish and the safety we enjoy. 

Vision Statement

Year after year, we will lift the spirits of all law enforcement officers through local acts of kindness, rallies of support, charitable contributions, and personal statements of support.  Through our efforts, we will help them "feel the love" of their community in tangible ways, while amplifying all the positive stories around law enforcement. 

Steering Committee

The Steering Committee is made up of a group of individuals with a broad range of community involvement.  This combination brings many resources and strengths to our organization.   We have many committees that could use your expertise!  Join US!

Michael Oswald

Michael is an attorney in Boise, Idaho, who has helped to develop Back the Blue Idaho and is working on our nonprofit. 

"I provide a wide range of business-savvy legal services to small and medium companies and nonprofits.

My favorite thing to do for a business is to take their standard sales contract and strip it down from an unintelligible 20-page monstrosity to a concise, 3-page doc that is easy for their customers to understand and to sign!

I have experience in a number of industries, including Real Estate, Construction, Defense, and Technology (Hardware, Software and E-Commerce)."
