Supporting Fallen

Law Enforcement Families

About fallen knights foundation

Launched in April of 2018, the Fallen Knights Foundation was formed to assist the families of fallen Law Enforcement Officers.  The President/CEO Robert 'Bob' Molina served in the United States Marine Corps from 1969 to 1972.  He joined the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department in October 1976 and with 31 years of service, retired in October of 2007.  Bob worked several Department assignments beginnig with Custody Division then moving on to  Patrol Division and finally Detective Division where he worked in Narcotics for 17 years.  He functioned as  Hostage Negotiator for 12 years including being assigned as the Department's Crisis Negotiations Team Coordinator. 

 

In 2009, Bob contracted for 3 years with the Department of State and Department of Defense as a Law Enforcement Professional and Police Advisor in Afghanistan.  His assignments included the British Military, USMC, Force Protection, Special Forces and JAG.


During his deployment, he engaged with other Law Enforcement Professionals from throughout the United States.  It was through these interactions that he learned that not all Agencies or Departments operate the same nor do they provide the same level of benefits.  In fact, the majority of Law Enforcement Agencies in the U.S. are small Departments with a staff of less than twenty-five officers and when an officer is killed in the line of duty, care for the families varies greatly.


After returning home, Bob grappled with the idea of how to assist the families of Fallen Officers to cushion such a devastating life event as losing a loved one in the line of duty.  Eventually, Bob decided to form the Fallen Knights Foundation Inc. to assist the families with burial funeral expenses, Psychological Services (Grief Counseling) and a ten-thousand dollar Educational Scholarship for each minor child of the Fallen Officer.

Bob chose the 'Knight' as the name and logo with a specific purpose.  The Knight is the protector of the Kingdom and its Citizens.  The suit of armor protect the Knight to a certain extent but most of all, the suit of armor conceals the Knight's identity, his or her race, ethnicity, religion or political affiliation.  To Bob, a cop is cop no matter where he or she works, whether local, country, state, federal or tribal.  Each family deserves to be honored when their loved one is lost.
