The 5.11 Always Be Ready brand campaign centers around providing individuals with the best quality products so they can be ready to help those in need, protect and serve, and crush goals. 5.11 brand supporter, inaugural Crossfit Games winner, and Newark, CA, Lieutenant and SWAT team member Jolie Gentry Macias is familiar with the importance of readiness and is helping 5.11 support national law enforcement in an even greater way.

Today during the annual conference of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) in Philadelphia, 5.11 presented the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund with a check for $20,000 from proceeds of the sale of 5.11 Defender-Flex Pants and Jeans. The Memorial Fund tells the story of American law enforcement, honors fallen officers, and works to make it safer for those who serve.

"I have always greatly admired the way the Memorial Fund pays tribute to the fallen and works to tell their stories," said Gentry Macias. "On a daily basis, law enforcement officers put their lives on the line to protect and serve their communities – it's reassuring to know that National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial is there to honor these brave men and women in the event a casualty takes place on duty." Gentry Macias adds, "5.11 has been a great partner over the years, and I am honored to be a part of their contribution to the Memorial Fund."

"We are excited to work with Jolie and the Memorial Fund," said 5.11's Vice President of Global Marketing, Willem Driessen. "5.11 creates purpose-built tactical apparel and gear for law enforcement agencies around the country. We provide them with the best gear so they can succeed in their mission." Driessen continues, "We are thrilled to be making this donation from the sale of our Defender-Flex Pants and Jeans to the Memorial Fund so they can continue serving law enforcement officers nationwide."

"I would like to extend my sincere thanks to 5.11 for their generosity and steadfast support over the years," said Memorial Fund President and CEO Craig Floyd. "We are very fortunate to have partners like 5.11 who step up to support and honor the men and women who valiantly serve the citizens in their communities each day."
