Out of utmost respect, and with great diligence, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund has transitioned from reporting Recently Fallen Officers in real-time to monthly announcements of fully vetted, Official Line-of-Duty Fallen Heroes. As the foremost organization that memorializes heroes who die in the line of duty, this official monthly announcement will share the names of the fallen who have been through our stringent review process, and approved for inclusion on the Memorial.
