APRIL 2015

United By Light


Every year, our annual Candlelight Vigil honors the officers whose names are added to the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. Even if you can’t make it to Washington, DC to experience the Vigil in person, you can take part through the United By Light campaign.

Anyone can participate in United By Light by watching the Vigil webcast and lighting a virtual candle. The Vigil webcast is free and we encourage you to invite your friends and family to join you on the evening of May 13 to watch together.

When you light a virtual candle and make a donation, you can dedicate that candle with a personalized message. It's a meaningful way to thank an officer you know or recognize the service of all officers.
