The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is comprised of a special group of volunteers: Law Enforcement Ambassadors and Guardians. Law Enforcement Ambassadors are active and retired law enforcement officers from city, state, federal and military law enforcement agencies. Law Enforcement Guardians are volunteers who support and honor law enforcement but are not sworn officers, allowing citizens, family members and corporate supporters to work closely with the Memorial Fund in achieving their goals.
This blog is the first in a new series designed to highlight the many contributions of our Law Enforcement Ambassadors and Guardians. Interested in becoming an Ambassador/Guardian? Visit http://www.nleomf.org/contribute/ambassadors/.
This month, we honor Law Enforcement Ambassador D. Michael (Mike) Kruggel, who has been an Ambassador for the past four years. Not only has Mike volunteered countless hours during National Police Week and throughout the year, he has also recruited his two sons, Jason and Michael, as volunteers.
Mike is a retired police officer from southern California who now resides in Tennessee. He is the Founder and CEO of the Office of Special Investigations, LLC, a provider of investigation services throughout the United States and a $25,000 donor to the “A Matter of Honor” Campaign to build the National Law Enforcement Museum.

Mike’s volunteer leadership spans the entire year, frequently stopping by the Memorial offices to lend a hand. During National Police Week, Mike and his sons can be found at the Memorial helping surviving family members and officers find names on the wall or assisting customers and stocking shelves at the Retail Center.
Mike Kruggel is an honored member of the Memorial Fund’s extended family and we recognize, with gratitude, his service and leadership to our organization.
