Actor Vincent D'Onofrio has agreed to narrate Heroes Behind the Badge, a moving and gripping documentary about the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers serving across America, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
Directed by two-time British Academy Award winner Wayne Derrick and set for release in fall 2012, Heroes Behind the Badge aims to change the way the public perceives the men and women of law enforcement. The film will highlight some of the unselfish acts of bravery law enforcement professionals commit each day in the line of duty, according to the Memorial Fund.
"We are thrilled to have Vincent D'Onofrio working with us," Derrick said in a release. "I could not think of a more fitting person to narrate this inspiring film."
Heroes Behind the Badge will highlight the lives of four fallen officers and the 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 officers will share their personal insights about how their near-fatal encounters have affected their lives.
