REMEMBERING FIRST HALF OF 2019

REMEMBERING FIRST HALF OF 2019

Law Enforcement Officers given their lives first half of 2019

During the first half of 2019, we must remember the Law Enforcement Officers who have given the ultimate sacrifice.  WE must remember these officers killed in the line of duty in 2019, we are down approximately 30% comparably to 2018, yet we have needlessly lost so many.

Without YOUR financial support, the Fallen Knights Foundation cannot help the families of our fallen officers.  Please join or donate today.  Your donation is very important.
