For the past 6 years the Police Hall of Fame has utilized a beautiful visual image to aid in remembering fallen heroes. This image came to be called “The Hill of Remembrance”. Each year flags are posted on the hillside out front of the Hall of Fame in honor of each family survivor currently in Hall of Fame programs. This past May, during Police Week, 12,110 flags were posted.
On average, nearly 150 law enforcement officers are killed in the line of duty each year. Each family is given the opportunity to participate in the Police Family Survivor Program and each officer is honored in the memorial at the American Police Hall of Fame and Museum. Listed below are the names of the officers most recently fallen.
Plans are underway now for the 2017 Police Memorial Day events. The dates are May 19th-20th, 2017
