WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER Photo Tribute Campaign

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is excited to announce the launch of WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER, our online photo tribute campaign. This campaign encourages Americans to show their support for the men and women of law enforcement, in particular, those who have died in the line of duty.

Over the years, 18,661 names have been engraved on the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, and they will always be remembered by their families, friends, partners, and communities. WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER is a new and creative way to show your appreciation for these American heroes.

It’s easy to participate in the campaign.

  1. Simply download a WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER sign by visiting http://www.willalwaysremember.org/, then fill in your name and message. Be creative with your sign and picture.
  2. Take your picture holding the sign (or have someone take it for you).
  3. Upload your picture to the website.

Or, if you are already a Flickr user, upload your own photo by joining the WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER group and add your photo to the group photo pool. Make sure to check back to http://www.willalwaysremember.org/ to view others’ pictures and look for yours in the slideshow.

As an added element to this campaign, viewers will be able to cast one vote for their favorite user-submitted picture. The voting period will run during the month of March (March 1-31, 2010).

The person who submits the photo that receives the most votes will win a trip to DC for National Police Week 2010 to attend the Candlelight Vigil. The winner will receive one round-trip airfare to DC and lodging for two nights along with VIP seating at the Vigil. The winning photo will be announced April 5, 2010.

So make your sign and take your picture today. Show your support for the entire law enforcement community and your appreciation for the hard work, dedication, and personal sacrifices our officers make every day.
