IRVINE, Calif. — 5.11 and SIG SAUER have teamed up to produce “Inside the Blue Line,” a documentary series showing the reality and demands on law enforcement today.

The series, which follows the Manchester (New Hampshire) Police Department, is available to watch to commemorate National Police Week.

“The goal of our project was to give the public a greater appreciation for life behind the badge today,” said 5.11’s Chief Marketing Officer, Debra Radcliff. “Watching these officers in action and learning about the challenges they face was a life-changing experience. We are honored to bring their stories to life.”

“This was an extraordinary project, and in these unprecedented times, we have a heightened awareness for the sacrifices that are being made by the law enforcement community and thank them for their service,” said Tom Taylor, SIG SAUER’s Chief Marketing Officer & Executive Vice President of Commercial Sales. “

5.11 has also announced it will be donating up to $25,000 to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund from the proceeds of limited edition ‘Honor Those Who Serve’ patches. The patch can be purchased online, as well as at 5.11 retail stores across the country.

“We are grateful for 5.11, their partnership and generosity over the years,” said National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund CEO Marcia Ferranto. “The importance of saluting these individuals is greater than ever as we’ve come to ask more than ever from our officers and their families.”
