National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and San Diego Padres Team Up for Law Enforcement Appreciation Night

San Diego Padres v. San Francisco Giants, Petco Park, 7:05 pm, September 28

September 21, 2012

Washington, DC—It’s a special night of baseball and law enforcement appreciation at PETCO Park when the San Diego Padres begin a three game series against in-state rivals, the San Francisco Giants. The Padres and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) are teaming up to provide all law enforcement professionals, employees, families and friends a special night of baseball at a special price.

This game is set to kick off the night before the world’s largest law enforcement conference, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) annual conference. As part of pre-game ceremonies, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department Honor Guard will present the nation's colors.

A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and the “Matter of Honor” to build the first ever National Law Enforcement Museum. The Museum will tell the proud history of American law enforcement as well as preserving the proud tradition of our law enforcement culture. Law enforcement officers, civilian employees and citizens that support public safety are encouraged to come out to PETCO Park and stand with the San Diego Padres in saluting our law enforcement professionals.

"We are proud to partner with the San Diego Padres," said Craig W. Floyd, Chairman and CEO of the Memorial Fund. “Coming together at PETCO Park to honor our nation’s law enforcement officers, while enjoying a fun night of baseball, is sure to be a great occasion and a great way to raise awareness and funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund."
