NLEOMF's 'Heroes Behind the Badge' Doc Arrives In Fall

March 23, 2012  | 

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) and Modern City Entertainment are teaming up to create "Heroes Behind the Badge," a documentary about the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers.

Set for release in fall 2012, "Heroes Behind the Badge" will feature stories about some of the brave men and women of law enforcement who have put their lives on the line and survived, as well as those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Filmed throughout the U.S., "Heroes Behind the Badge" will highlight the lives of four fallen officers and the enormous impact their passing has had on their family members, colleagues, and community.

The film will also feature the stories of three officers who narrowly escaped their assailants. These living legends will share their personal insights about how their near-fatal encounters have affected their lives.

Produced in partnership with the Memorial Fund, "Heroes Behind the Badge" will also highlight National Police Week events held in Washington, D.C., including the annual May 13 candlelight vigil—where the names of fallen officers added to the Memorial each year are read aloud and formally dedicated—and the annual National Peace Officers Memorial Day service at the U.S. Capitol on May 15.

One of the film’s producers, Bill Erfurth, is a retired lieutenant of the Miami-Dade Police Department and a 25-year law enforcement veteran. For Erfurth, the project is a labor of love that he believes will create awareness about what it really means to walk the thin blue line, according to Craig W. Floyd, the NLEOMF chairman and chief executive.

"I'm excited to be working with Bill—a longtime supporter of the Memorial Fund and a talented film producer—on this project that will raise public awareness about the service and sacrifice law enforcement officers make each day across our nation,” said Floyd.
