Heroes Behind the Badge 1 AND 2
THERE ARE TWO FILMS
The original Film, Heroes Behind the Badge, is a moving documentary about the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers serving across America. The film features stories about some of the brave men and women of law enforcement who have put their lives on the line and survived, as well as those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Filmed throughout the U.S., Heroes Behind the Badge highlights the lives of four fallen officers and the enormous impact their passing has had on their family members, colleagues, and community.
The film also features the stories of three officers who narrowly escaped their assailants. These living legends share their personal insights about how their near-fatal encounters have affected their lives.
Produced in partnership with the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, Heroes Behind the Badge also highlights National Police Week events held in Washington, DC, including the annual May 13th Candlelight Vigil and the annual National Peace Officers Memorial Day service held at the U.S. Capitol on May 15.
The newest film - Sacrifice & Survival is a heart-wrenching true-life crime saga about the men and women of law enforcement and their selfless acts of courage under fire. Produced in partnership with Craig Floyd and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, the second installment of this powerful documentary series takes place in various corners of America and follows the stories of two officers who paid the ultimate price, as well as the stories of three severely injured officers who are now battling through the painstaking process of recovery.
The film also takes viewers to New York City’s 9/11 Memorial site, where many officers perished on that fateful day in 2001, and to National Police Week in Washington, DC, where the fallen are honored each year. Directed by British Academy Award winning filmmaker Wayne Derrick, and narrated by Law & Order's Vincent D'Onofrio, this highly anticipated follow-up documentary to the original Heroes Behind the Badge film is a tribute to the heroes of law enforcement who have suffered through life-threatening injuries and are fighting their way back, and to those who are gone, but not forgotten.
One of the film’s producers, Bill Erfurth, is a retired Lieutenant of the Miami-Dade Police Department and a 25-year law enforcement veteran. For Erfurth, the project is a labor of love that he believes will create awareness about what it really means to walk the thin blue line.
Bill will be joining us for these screenings.
