I am looking for something similar to an otterbox defender, but not an otterbox. Don't care for their cases, but as an officer, I really do need protection.
Thanks.

Get a UAG case. Its protective and better looking than an Otterbox

Thanks.

If you find something that can fit a duty belt, PLEASE let me know!

Maybe the Seidio Convert case is what you'd be looking for? It's kind of expensive, but looks like it provides a ton on protection.

Edit: Looks like this would work if your duty belt was 1 1/2" or smaller.

I would love to get the UAG, but I need screen protection and from what I see, they do not offer a case like the defender.

It comes with a screen protector.... but also the front lip of the case extends maybe a 1/4 of an inch past the screen to protect from falls, if that's what you mean

I want something with a hard plastic cover for the screen, just like the defender.

I don't have time to look through the patents that they have (76 issues, 70 more pending), but if I recall, having a screen protector built into the case is one of them

depending on which region youre from, with the money you save from buying a UAG instead of an otterbox, you can afford to add a tempered glass screen protector as well, which offers better protection. this is the route i went, still waiting for my clearvue glass screen protector though.
