With the current climate and views of Law Enforcement, CVF has made it a priority to help those who wear the badge and make the decision to sacrifice their lives to keep their communities safe. It is our honor to help the families of heroes who have passed as well as departments in need.

CVF is honored to be able to help out the men and women of the Orland Park Police Department through the donation of 4 less lethal collapsible stock's and forend's to be installed on 4 less lethal shotguns. This donation was made possible thanks to the help of Adaptive Tactical.
