HAPCOA has supported the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) Annual Candlelight Vigil by attending the annual event, by being selected to read off the names of the fallen and by donations to the Memorial Fund.
This year due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic the annual event, highlighted by the 32nd Annual Candlelight Vigil, has been canceled. The NLEOMF reports that the pandemic will NOT deter them from honoring the fallen.
On Wednesday, May 13, at 8 pm (EDT) the NLEOMF plans to move forward in solidarity with a virtual Candlelight Vigil, including the reading of names of officers who made the ultimate sacrifice. This year the event will honor 307 fallen officers whose names will be engraved onto the Memorial.
To be apart of this years virtual event please visit LawMemorial.org to watch a broadcast of this important and moving ceremony.
If you wish to support the Memorial Fund please visit the website (LawMemorial.org) or mail your donations to National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, PO Box 97072, Washington, DC 20090-7072. The NLEOMF is a 501©(3) charity organization and your gifts are tax-deductible.
