On Saturday, family survivors are invited to journey back in time to Old Florida as we gather at Fort Christmas Historical Park. The historical fort, schoolhouse and homes will serve as the backdrop to an afternoon of history and experiences shared by pioneer demonstrators.
You are invited to join our CLOSED Facebook Group specifically for Families of Fallen Officers. Your participation allows us to communicate with the group about activities, resources, and opportunities that are unique to you.
Likewise, you can share your experiences and challenges with those who understand all too well what you are going through. We have several administrators who are part of the group and post comments or questions, but the group is YOURS.
If you are interested in joining the group, just go to our American Police Hall of Fame & Museum Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/APHF911/ and scroll down the menu on the left until you see “Groups.” Select the “Family Survivors of Fallen Law Enforcement Officers” group and ask to join. Our administrators should approve you within 24 hours.
