Net proceeds from the Law Enforcement Ride & Run to Remember benefit the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. Our mission is to permanently record and appropriately commemorate the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers and provide information that will help promote law enforcement safety.
A nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization headquartered in Washington, DC, the Memorial Fund built and continues to maintain the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial the nation’s monument to law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. The Memorial Fund is a principal organizer of the National Police Week observance each May and hosts a Candlelight Vigil at the Memorial each May 13th to dedicate the newly-engraved names of the fallen and honor all fallen law enforcement officers. In addition, the Memorial Fund maintains the largest, most comprehensive database of line-of-duty officer deaths, conducts research to identify emerging trends and findings of officer fatalities, and serves as an information clearinghouse to improve officer safety.
More recently, the Memorial Fund launched a campaign to build the first-ever National Law Enforcement Museum, adjacent to the Memorial in Washington, DC. Soon to enter its third phase of construction, the Museum is scheduled to open in 2015 and will take a high-tech approach to telling the story of American law enforcement through interactive exhibits, collections, research and education.
