The American Police Hall of Fame & Museum is in Titusville, about 40 miles south of Daytona Beach and 20 miles north of Cocoa Beach. This is an invitation for all officers to attend this year’s memorial service and show of support to the family survivors also in attendance. Last year the survivor attendance alone was 492 from 26 different states. The memorial service includes the reading of 2012 fallen officers as well as the reading of names of officers from previous years who have family or representative(s) in attendance. Therefore officers from outside Titusville are encouraged to attend and hear their fallen comrade’s name even if their fellow officer was killed several years ago. Please contact Survivor Coordinator Lori Shepherd at the Hall of Fame at email@example.com to let her know if you will be attending and representing a fallen officer so that the officer’s name can be added to Roll Call in advance. All names need to be submitted before May 8th. Only one fallen officer per representative please. The memorial service begins at 7:30pm at the Police Hall of Fame and will conclude at or before 9:00pm. A family survivor picnic is on Saturday May 18th from 11:30am till 4:00pm
Now get on your bikes and lets ride!!!
We are pround to announce the annual motorcycle ride for the Florida Fallen Officers for 2012. Sadly, we lost five brothers last year which include the Broward Sheriffs Office, Jupiter Police Departent, Brevard Sheriffs Office, Clay County Sheriffs Office and the Florida Department Of Corrections.
Our ‘Laoch An Phobal’ (community hero) from the past is Fort Lauderdale Police Officer Walter Ilyankoff (EOW 07-21-1974). Visit our website to read his story from the night of his last watch until the last parole denial.
This years ride will start on Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 9-11am at the BSO Pompano Beach District Office, 100 Sgt Chris Reyka Place (SW 3rd Street) Pompano Beach. This years ride is co-sponsored by the Broward Sheriff’s Office and will include a full escort. All agencies participating with the escort, please contact BSO Sergeant Allen Adkins @ 954-515-9612 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a week long ride including stops to all the Departments who lost an officer in 2012. We will meet the families, friends, co-workers and I can not emphasize enough what an impact it has on the families, for you to ride with us on Saturday, for the weekend or the entire ride, the choice is yours but we welcome you for whatever portion you are able to participate in.
On the return ride home, most will ride across and meet us at the hotel in Naples and ride back for the End Of The Ride Party. This year, the End Of The Ride Party is sponsored by the Shamrocks Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club. They are donating one of the rifles in the memory of a Fallen Officer and insisted on booking a live band, pig roast with all of the fixings, snacks and drinks. Special thanks to Mr. Gus, Shamrock President.
To register or just to show your support, visit the website and get your shirts early this year. Remember they also make great christmas gifts for that special someone! This is our only fundraiser we have and it will cover you registration, shirts, food and drinks throughout the event. Remember, we are our brothers keeper. It is our responsibility to support the families of those who are no longer with us.
Each year we give away a patrol rifle to a fulltime, Florida Officer who currently does not have one. Each rifle is engraved with one of the Fallen Officers name, department and end of watch date from 2012. After you register, you will be entered for this drawing, one entry for each shirt, so collect for everybody on your shift and good luck! (the Fallen Officers family will draw the winning name and you will be notified that evening).
