P.O.M. receives requests for additional resources to minister to the LE community. Chaplains’ Ruffatto & Lee would like to develop additional resources such as Bible studies, devotionals, and training materials, as well as continue printing the flagship resource, Tactical Edition Bible for Peace Officers and a reprint of Chaplain Lee’s book, Backup on the Beat which is currently out of print.

Partnership Needs
Providing quality LE ministry resources is P.O.M.’s largest expense and a core part of why we exist. In order to provide these much desired resources, we need your “back-up.” The Tactical Edition Bible alone costs approximately $40,000+ each printing. To continue developing and printing P.O.M. resources, we estimate needed funds of $60,000+ would be needed.

Written Resources

Peace Officer Ministries Bible 5.0 Tactical Edition
This fifth Tactical Edition uses the New King  James Version (NKJV) translation– an easy-to-read translation using a "complete equivalence" translation. With this, POM seeks to outfit our heroes with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This includes an approximately 100-page Bible study section for officers and chaplains, by Chaplain Steve Lee and Frank Ruffatto.
