NLEOMF Launches LODD Audio Tribute Program

February 01, 2012  | 

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) has launched a new audio tribute program that's designed to share the stories of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty.

The new program is a way to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, according to NLEOMF. It encapsulates a well-known quote inscribed on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Each audio tribute, approximately five minutes long, is created by a team of professionals, including audio engineers, researchers, script writers, and voice actors. The tributes contain many defining accomplishments and memorable quotes about an officer—bringing to life each captivating story.

Once finished, these audio tributes will be housed in the National Law Enforcement Museum, accessible to museum visitors online and in person when the museum's doors open in 2014.

Listeners will gain a greater understanding of the lives lived and sacrifices made by America's fallen heroes, according to Craig W. Floyd, NLEOMF's chairman.

"We are thrilled to offer this special opportunity to people across the country to help us document the lives of America's peace officers in such a unique and lasting way," Floyd said in a press release. "Never before have Americans had the chance to ensure that stories about a loved one, colleague, neighbor or friend will be preserved for generations and shared with visitors of the National Law Enforcement Museum."

The audio tribute program is not exclusive; individuals, businesses, civic groups and veterans organizations can get involved in helping create these tributes that commemorate the service and sacrifice of our nation's law enforcement officers. Citizens can either fund an entire audio tribute or donate to support the program.

"The audio tribute program gives grateful communities, businesses, law enforcement agencies and individual citizens an opportunity to express their appreciation for our officers by supporting an initiative that produces lasting tributes in their honor," Floyd said. "What better way to honor America's fallen officers than to help guarantee their individual stories are told in the nation's museum about law enforcement?"
