Mission Recognition: Improving Officer Morale

The National Association of Chiefs of Police in a joint effort with the American Police Hall of Fame started a National Awards Program more then 40 years ago to fill the void of recognition for worthy American law enforcement officers. The vast majority of recognition law enforcement officers receive is negative press in the local news. It is not often that their good deeds get noticed and are rarely mentioned. An awards program counteracts this skewed public image and can have long reaching effects. Awards are the best way to make the officer aware that they are appreciated and a valuable asset to American society. Between 2004 and 2015 nearly 5,000 awards were presented to worthy individuals.

You can also donate or join by calling 321-264-0911. A staff member will be happy to speak with you.

Honoring Fallen Heroes
Honor Guard

The American Police Hall of Fame and Museum holds a Memorial Service each year during Police Week to honor law enforcement’s fallen heroes. We extend an invitation to all Police Family Survivors to join us as we remember our heroes that we miss so much. The Memorial Service is held on the grounds of the American Police Hall of Fame and Museum which provides a time to reflect on all of our law enforcement officers lost over the years. There is a final roll call of the officers lost in the previous year, as well as a roll call of those officers lost in previous years that have family in attendance. Our hope is that guests will receive a blessing and encouragement while visiting during this special time. We want to pay tribute to how these officers lived, and to remember that they died in service to their fellow citizens.
