2020 Year-End Officer Fatality Report to Release in January


On Monday, January 11, 2021, the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum will release its proprietary detailed report on officer fatalities. Following the release of the report, for the first time, we are launching a series of critical in-depth one-on-one interviews between law enforcement and medical leaders discussing solutions to trends found in the leading line-of-duty death categories of firearms, traffic, and health-related circumstances. These programs will provide lifesaving information of the highest relevance to our law enforcement officers. Across three days following the release of the report, on January 12, 13, and 14, we will broadcast these in-depth one-on-one interviews across multiple platforms to reach the greatest number of officers and their families.

Congratulations to October 2020 Officer of Month

OTM October 2020

We are pleased to share that Officer Veronica Campbell of the Atlanta (GA) Police Department has been named October 2020 Officer of the Month.

Veteran police officer Veronica Campbell has made a habit of giving back to the community she serves. From hosting annual toy drives to involvement with the Atlanta Police Foundation’s At-Promise Center, Officer Campbell has made helping others a way of life. Her recent generosity toward a struggling single mother of five, who fled a domestic violence situation, brought her efforts to our attention for this honor.

“If each officer could make that kind of connection with just one individual in the community, imagine how strong the relationship between law enforcement and communities could be,” stated Marcia Ferranto, NLEOMF CEO.
