Our Story

Honoring America's law enforcement officers.

Founded in 1984, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is dedicated to telling the story of American Law Enforcement and making it safer for those who serve.

A nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization headquartered in Washington, DC, the Memorial Fund built and continues to maintain the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial—the nation’s monument to law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. The Memorial Fund is a principal organizer of the National Police Week observance each May and hosts a Candlelight Vigil each May 13th to honor all fallen officers. In addition, the Memorial Fund maintains the largest, most comprehensive database of line-of-duty officer deaths, conducts research into officer fatality trends and issues, and serves as an information clearinghouse.

More recently, the Memorial Fund has built the National Law Enforcement Museum, adjacent to the Memorial in Washington, DC. The Museum tells the story of American law enforcement through exhibits, collections, research and education.

For over twenty years, I have traveled to Washington, DC for National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial as many times as possible.

This year I was not able to attend the memorial because of my duties in Albany.

In today’s mail at the Capitol, I received from an old friend a lapel badge commemorating this years ceremony.

I can’t thank you enough. I appreciate that you were thinking of me. Comment if you’d like, but I don’t want to expose you publicly.

RPD thanks Det. Peggy Braddock and PO Mike Luba for riding in this year’s Police Unity Tour. Their participation and your support helped raise awareness of officers who died in the line of duty and also raised funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
Today's 13th Annual YPD BLUE 5K Run for a Cause was truly inspiring, to see such an incredibly large turnout in support of the Yarmouth Police Dept. Relief Association and memorializing the legacy of K9 Sergeant Sean Gannon, Worcester Police Officer Manny Familia in support of The Manny 267 Foundation, Worcester Fire Fighter Lt Jason Menard Fund in support of the Menard Children’s Fund, and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. There are so many people to thank who made today possible, but we're all grateful to the YPD, all of the organizers, the Skipper Chowder House, and to all of the sponsors.
Nascar driver Sheldon Creed is representing all of us today by driving his #2 car wrapped honoring the over 600 law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty over the past year.
Our very own Officer Brandi was able to meet Sheldon and get a first hand look at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund car!
In honor of National Police Week the Nevada State Police honor guard flew to Washington, DC, to join with law enforcement and other first responders across the nation to honor all law enforcement officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect and serve their communities in 2021.

Trooper Micah May was honored this year and his family was surrounded by thousands of his brothers and sisters in blue family. We would like to thank the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund for putting together such an honorable and memorable event. 💙
Recap of Police Week "Tent City" in Washington D.C. 2022. Thank you to everyone who came by the booth, gave us patches and coins, and drank a cold on with us.

This is what love looks like.

In the middle of our nation’s Capitol thousands of people gathered to pour love out onto the families of our fallen officers.

We traveled to Washington DC to honor our fallen, Sgt. Dominic Vaca and Detective Armando Cantu. And to support their families.

Red roses were given to the wives, husbands, children and parents of the men and women who lost their lives in the line of duty.

The roses symbolized an emotion not often associated with law enforcement: LOVE.
