Be a Part of History

Join the National Law Enforcement Officer Memorial Fund's Stand With Honor community, and let your stories be our legacy.

Since America’s earliest days, millions of men and women have answered the call of law enforcement, and today there are more than 850,000 active officers. The National Law Enforcement Museum tells their stories and yours. The Stand With Honor program is a place to preserve your story and our legacy. What will linger in the hearts and minds of those who visit the stories is an overwhelming sense of service and sacrifice that stems from our fellow brave law enforcement officers. Whether you are an active or retired officer or a surviving family member, we want your story preserved for the nation to see. Stand With Honor and be a part of American history. It’s easy. It’s meaningful. And it matters.

Your Stories. Our Legacy.
