NLEOMF Launches Police Week Photo Contest

February 03, 2011  | 


The National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund has announced this year's "Will Always Remember" photo contest, which provides the winner a trip to National Police Week in D.C.

The initial photo tribute campaign to fallen officers, which was launched in late 2009, resulted in hundreds of photos submitted from supporters across the country.

The winning photo featured Cody Lasater, the son of Pittsburg (CA) Police Officer Larry Lasater, who was killed by a robbery suspect in April 2005 prior to Cody's birth. Cody and his mother, Jo Ann, joined 20,000 other members of the law enforcement family on May 13 at the annual candlelight vigil.

The "Will Always Remember" photo tribute campaign honors America's fallen law enforcement officers..
