NLEOMF Introduces Recorded Memorial Tribute Program

June 29, 2012  | 

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) has launched the Recorded Memorial Tribute Program to share the stories of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty, according to the group.

The program provides a way for citizens to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. It encapsulates a well-known quote inscribed on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C.'s Judiciary Square, "It is not how these officers died that made them heroes, it is how they lived," according to an NLEOMF release.

Each Recorded Memorial Tribute, approximately five minutes long, is created by a team of professional recording engineers, researchers, script writers, and voice actors, and will include photographs by Pulitzer Prize winner David H. Kennerly.

Additionally, each donor will be recognized at the end of every tribute. The tributes contain many defining accomplishments and memorable quotes about an officer—bringing to life each captivating story. Once finished, these 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. There, visitors will gain a greater understanding of the lives lived and sacrifices made by America's fallen heroes.

"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," Craig W. Floyd, chairman and CEO of NLEOMF. "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 Recorded Memorial Tribute Program is not exclusive; all Americans—individuals, businesses, civic groups, and veterans organizations—are encouraged to get involved in helping create these tributes to commemorate the service and sacrifice of our nation’s law enforcement officers. Citizens can either fund an entire tribute or donate to support the Recorded Memorial Tribute Program.

"The Recorded Memorial 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," said Floyd. "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?"
