Police Unity Tour is the official sponsor of the Memorial Fund's Officer of the Month Award Program.

Throughout our nation’s history, over 20,000 law enforcement heroes have made the ultimate sacrifice for the safety and protection of others, their memories forever honored on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

Devotion to Duty.

Exemplary Service.

American Heroes.

But law enforcement has many other heroes as well—officers who distinguish themselves each and every day through exemplary service and devotion to duty.

To recognize these “living legends” of the profession, the Memorial Fund created the Officer of the Month Award Program in September 1996. Each month, we honor a deserving officer (or set of officers) at the local, state or federal level—men and women who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. In addition to recognition in their own communities, Officers of the Month are honored at a special awards luncheon each May in Washington, DC, during National Police Week, and they are featured in the Memorial Fund’s annual calendar.

Read the inspiring stories of heroism and service of past award winners, and consider nominating an officer you know or work with for this prestigious national award.
