2020 Florida Fraternal Order of Police Memorial Foundation Schedule of Events
To All Survivors, Law Enforcement Officers, Fraternal Order of Police Members and Law Enforcement Supporters:
It is with regret that the Florida Fraternal Order of Police Law Enforcement Memorial Service must be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This decision was difficult, however the health and safety of our survivors, law enforcement officers, dignitaries and the entire State of Florida is most important to us.
The Memorial Committee will be holding a virtual service on September 12, 2020 beginning at 9:00 AM to honor our fallen heroes of 2019, their families and the agencies they worked with.
The families and agencies who lost officers in the line of duty will receive full honors during the service to be held on April 26, 2021 in Tallahassee.
I pray that we can all come together in the future to honor our fallen heroes.
Memorial contains the names of every law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty in this state along with federal officers assigned to Florida and who lost their lives in the line of duty. Memorial is located on the grounds of the state capital building in Tallahassee. We have posted the names in our Roll Call of Heroes.
