New York, NY—The New York Mets are set to host Law Enforcement Appreciation Night on August 7, 2012, as the Mets take to Citi field to do battle against division rivals, the Miami Marlins. New York City has seen their law enforcement heroes called to action in every situation imaginable and has had to say goodbye to too many.

The Mets are offering special Law Enforcement Appreciation Night ticket packages for law enforcement officers, their families, and all supporters. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Memorial Fund.

"We are proud to partner with the New York Mets once again," said Craig W. Floyd, Chairman and CEO of the Memorial Fund. “Coming together at Citi Field for food, fun, and baseball in honor of our nation’s law enforcement officers is sure to be a great evening—and a great way to raise awareness and funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund."
