Welcome to



Who we Are:


Smoking Shields was established in 2015 to address the lack of a fraternal organization of law enforcement professionals who shared their passion of enjoying premium cigars and a desire to help our nation's heroes.

The Smoking Shields' purpose is to provide financial assistance to Law Enforcement professionals and our nation's military and their immediate families nationwide.

One of the charities we are active with is Operation: Cigars for Warriors. This fantastic organization collects cigars from numerous sources and gets them to our nation's brave men and women fighting on the front lines, protecting our freedoms. To date, we have sent thousands of cigars for distribution to our troops.

The Smoking Shields is comprised of all areas of Law Enforcement. Many Federal, State, County, City, Town / Village agencies are represented in the club.

Another charity we are active with is The Nassau County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, located in Nassau County, New York. This organization is a 501(c) (3), nonprofit originally designed to protect animals in the county from abuse and neglect, and to provide basic welfare. They hold special authority to enforce NYS Agriculture & Markets Law, and all other state and local humane laws. They are the only animal protection agency officially designated to operate within the county's borders. 

The Smoking Shields Cigar Club 501(c)(3)

non-profit organization.
