Honoring Fallen Law Enforcement During COVID-19 Pandemic
As the leading authority on law enforcement line-of-duty deaths, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund recognizes that our officers on the front lines are increasingly vulnerable to contracting the COVID-19 virus, and we are committed to performing the research required to determine how COVID-19 is impacting line-of-duty deaths. These men and women are our true heroes. We hope everyone will join with us as we continue to keep the law enforcement community in our prayers.
In addition, the current crisis that our nation and the world is facing has resulted in the cancellation of public gatherings in DC during National Police Week 2020. The National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum wants you to know that this crisis will not deter us from honoring the 2019 fallen. On Wednesday, May 13, 2020, we plan to march forward in solidarity with a virtual Candlelight Vigil and the reading of the names that can be watched from anywhere in the world. Then, as the future becomes more certain and the end of this crisis is near, we will begin to make plans for a live reading of names to honor our 2019 fallen officers. You have our commitment that the fallen will not be forgotten, and we will not rest until they receive the honor that they so rightfully deserve.
For now, we encourage you to support the mission of the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum by following the link below.
