Who are the men and women behind the badge?

Join us in our travels and meet law enforcement officers from across the country and share in their story as we help build relationships with the communities they serve.

Who We Are

Retired Sergeant Charlie Simmons and his wife Tricia Simmons

After 27 years with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office we wanted to give back to the law enforcement community. We are travelling the country in our 5th wheel trailer and meeting with law enforcement agencies across the country.

What We Do

Taking Photographs and Telling Stories

We are looking to share stories of the people behind the badge in an effort to give a new perspective on the men and women of law enforcement. We also provide agencies with a myriad of photos for them to use to build relationships with the communities they serve and to build esprit de corp within the agency.
