Indianapolis, IN—On Tuesday January 14 at 7:00 pm, the Indiana Pacers will take on the Sacramento Kings at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, as the Pacers team up with the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) and the Indiana Fraternal Order of Police to host a special night honoring the service and sacrifice of all Indiana Public Safety officers and their families.

A special pre-game ceremony will honor Indiana Law Enforcement Agencies statewide, and a Multi-Agency Law Enforcement Honor Guard featuring the Indiana State Police, Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Indianapolis Metro Police Department, Lawrence Police Department and the Marion County Sheriff’s Department will present the colors during the National Anthem.

There will also be a police car display, kid’s finger print stations and other family activities and information hosted by area police departments.

Additionally, families are encouraged to stick around for post-game free throws on the Pacers main basketball court. This special night is open to the community, family, friends and anyone who supports and honors public safety officers.

“We are proud to partner with the Indiana Pacers and the Indiana Fraternal Order of Police," said Craig W. Floyd, Chairman and CEO of the Memorial Fund. “Coming together at The Bankers Life Fieldhouse to honor our nation’s law enforcement officers, while enjoying a fun night of basketball, is sure to be a great occasion—and a great way to raise awareness and funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund."

The Memorial Fund is spearheading the efforts to build the privately-funded National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, DC, which will tell the story of American law enforcement through exhibits, collections, research, and education. Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton serve as Honorary Chairs of the Museum’s National Honorary Campaign Committee, which also includes seven former attorneys general of the United States, as well as other former government officials and celebrities, including Honorary Chairman Clint Eastwood.
