Recently Fallen Heroes

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is transitioning from reporting recently fallen officers in real-time to monthly announcements of fully vetted, Official Line-of-Duty Fallen Heroes. Each month, starting at the end of April, we will begin sharing the names of the brave men and women who have been approved for inclusion on the Memorial by our Names Committee following a stringent review process by our researchers.

While the Recently Fallen Heroes 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.
