Get Behind The Badge, established in 2001, was organized after the tragic line of duty death of Whitehall Officer Terry McDowell. During a violent attack, Officer Terry McDowell lost his life and his partner Eric Brill was shot and subsequently lost an eye. After this incident, the line of duty deaths of Columbus Police LT. Christopher Claypool, the loss occurring during 9/11 and critical injuries of several other Central Ohio officers, we realized that we needed a charity to raise funds for the families of these fallen and injured heroes. Angela McDowell, the surviving widow of Officer McDowell, sought to build something so that no other widow or family would have to endure the financial hardships she encountered during Terry’s death.
During the tragic incident of Officer McDowell, the crucial response from Whitehall Fire Department was one of the factors in Officer Brill’s survival. Their heroic efforts to remove Officer Brill from a hostile environment were instrumental in saving his life. With the teamwork of both safety services it was recognized that Get Behind The Badge needed to include Fire personnel within their realm of responsibility.
The difference with our organization compared to others is that our Executive and Trustee Boards are not compensated for what we do. We do what we do straight from our hearts and the responsibilities we have to care for our own. Help us as we help those who help others.
