Mission Statement

The Badge of Honor Memorial Foundation was created with two goals in mind:

The first and foremost is to assist the survivors of officers who have been killed in the line of duty to obtain all of the statutory benefits that may be available to them.

The second goal is to provide each family coping with their loss with a lasting symbol of recognition for the life of service the officer courageously gave.
