The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund tracks law enforcement fatalities across the nation. Whenever an officer is killed in the line of duty, we inform the public of their sacrifice through our Recently Fallen Hero Alerts program.
While the Recently Fallen Hero Alerts program recognizes the service of the highlighted officers, it is not an assurance that their name will be added to the National Memorial. There is a separate process with an established set of criteria for names to be added to the wall. Learn how names are added to the Memorial.
COVID-19 law enforcement fatalities where the department submitted the appropriate documents are included on this page.
Police Unity Tour is the official sponsor of the Memorial Fund’s Recently Fallen Hero Alerts Program.
