Founders Brad Shepherd and Brett Key bring nearly 50 years of experience in law enforcement. Other members of our core team have decades of experience in law enforcement and crisis intervention. In the last 10 years, this team has responded to critical incidents, including line of duty death and natural disasters to perform mental health counseling and peer support crisis intervention. They also have assisted with development of peer support teams to help law enforcement personnel prepare for and respond to the effects of critical incidents. 

Warrior's Rest Foundation works in partnership with other organizations to form a comprehensive support network.

Working together we help to build resiliency with law enforcement, their partners, and their families to foster healthy professional and personal lives.




  • Integrity--We demonstrate a commitment to honesty and strong moral principles in all that we say and do.
  • Trust--We work to engender trust among law enforcement teams--that firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of others. 
  • Courage--We help build the resilience required to persevere and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty.  
We know from first-hand experience that responding to critical incidents has a ripple effect on personnel, departments, and families. We stand with law enforcement as they navigate the challenges of our profession.”
— Brad Shepherd, CEO Warrior's Rest Foundation
