The Serve and Protect Badge Pendant and the Legacy Ring were originally designed to honor my dad’s life after losing him suddenly last year. As a former police officer and SWAT team leader, my dad (Dave Acosta) created his own legacy that continued far beyond his years of active duty as he devoted the rest of his life to supporting the Law Enforcement community.
With several family members who have been LEOs (Law Enforcement Officers), the current hostile climate & public attitude officers are forced to face and endure hits close to home.
I wanted to release these unique pieces so EVERYONE who appreciates our Law Enforcement Officers can show their support for these heroes - especially those with loved ones who serve. I want these pieces to promote and encourage a loving, supportive, and appreciative community for our Law Enforcement in a time when the world seems against them and their jobs are becoming increasingly dangerous.
I hope these pieces can give us the courage to defend our officers. Just as they serve and protect us when we call - it’s OUR turn to serve and protect THEM.
A portion of every sale will be donated to the 1033 Foundation, a national foundation owned and run by 1st Responders, that serves 1st Responders and their families in many different ways.
Each Serve & Protect badge pendant and Legacy Ring is proudly hand crafted from start to finish in the USA. They are made of solid sterling silver and undergo an antiquing process that is done by hand as well. Due to the nature of the hand-crafted process, each piece is truly unique and may vary slightly from the photos here.

You may choose to have your Serve & Protect badge pendant engraved with a custom badge number. Select the engraved option when ordering and use the order notes to indicate the badge number you would like engraved. Please note that if you have a badge number that is longer than 3 digits, the size of the engraved numbers will be smaller than what is pictured in the product images (the height of the numbers pictured here is 1.5 mm, so longer badge numbers will be engraved at approximately 1-1.3 mm character height).
These are custom crafted items and production time is 4-6 weeks.
