A Humbling Transition

After a 25-year career with the Prince George’s County Police Department (PGPD), a local police department in Maryland, it is an honor and privilege to join the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) as the new Executive Director of the Memorial. I would be remiss if I did not thank my predecessor, Pat Montuore, who recently retired. Pat has long been a steadfast supporter of both law enforcement and the Memorial, particularly given his continuing role with the Police Unity Tour, an organization that raises much of the funding needed to maintain our sacred Memorial that honors our heroes who have fallen in the line of duty.

While my time in uniform has come to an end, I am incredibly humbled to be able to continue to contribute to the law enforcement profession through the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund. I am so thankful to work with, and be surrounded by, my new co-workers who are—and have been—dedicated to honoring the fallen, telling the story of American law enforcement, and finding ways to make it safer for those who serve. This year we added the names of 619 heroes to the Walls of Remembrance. Over the course of three weeks, I watched from the first through the last of those names being etched into the marble walls, an emotional experience for me. It is not lost on me the incredible responsibility I now hold in helping to honor the memory and share the stories of these newly added heroes, as well as all those who came before. I am humbled and honored beyond words to accept this position. I want all those who are connected to this sacred space to know that I will not falter in honoring those who have died in the line of duty, and will work tirelessly to remind the nation of the service and sacrifice of our fallen heroes.

Kind regards,

Bill Alexander
