Submitting an Officer’s Name

An Officer Data Form is to be submitted to the Memorial Fund for each officer to be considered for inclusion on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. The form must be completed by an official representative of the department for which the officer served and must be signed by the head of the agency. Otherwise, this form will not be processed.

Names are inscribed on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial once a year, in the spring immediately prior to National Police Week. An Officer Data Form must be submitted by the December 31 deadline to be considered for inclusion on the Memorial the following year.

However, please submit your Officer Data Form as soon as possible. Due to the number of COVID-19 related line-of-duty deaths this year, we need to be able to process your information in a timely manner.
