The Officer Down Memorial Page (www.odmp.org) is proud to host the National Police Week 5K in Washington D.C. on May 9, 2015.
The largest law enforcement memorial in the United States, ODMP honors over 22,000 law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty, including Officer Kevin Ambrose of the Springfield, Massachuetts Police, whose life was taken in the line of duty in June of 2012.
This event raises money to support important ODMP programs, including
- Line of Duty Death Notifications,
- No Parole program to keep cop killers behind bars,
- ODMP K9 program honoring fallen K9 heroes,
- Survivor Benefits Database,
- As well as ongoing efforts to uncover the stories of forgotten heroes and pay them the tribute they deserve.
A portion of the funds raised at this event will also be donated to Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) to support their vital programs assisting fallen officers' survivors.
Thank you for your generous support!
Together, we can pay fitting tribute to those law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice.
