"Heroes Behind The Badge" Movie Screening
Friday, December 7, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (PST)
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and Modern City Entertainment have teamed up to create Heroes Behind the Badge, a moving documentary about the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers serving across America.
Heroes Behind the Badge 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.
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.
A portion of the proceeds from this movie screening go to The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and Law Enforcement United Team Arizona LEU (Supporting Concerns of Police Survivors and the Officer Down Memorial Page)
Doors open at 6pm and the event will start at 7:00pm.
When & Where
Team Arizona LEU.com & AZ Highway Of Heroes.com
Team Arizona LEU is made up of Police Officers, Deputy Sheriffs, and Support Staff representing local law enforcement from the State of Arizona. Our goal is to participate in the “Road to Hope”, a 240 mile bike ride from Chesapeake, VA to Washington D.C. that honors fallen officers and helps raise funds to support Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) and the Officer Down Memorial Page (http://www.odmp.org).
C.O.P.S. provides resources to assist in the rebuilding of the lives of surviving families and affected co-workers of law enforcement officers that have died in the line of duty. Furthermore, C.O.P.S. provides training to law enforcement agencies on survivor victimization issues and educates the public of the need to support the law enforcement profession and its survivors.
The Officer Down Memorial Page, Inc., (ODMP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring America’s fallen law enforcement heroes. More than 19,000 officers have made the ultimate sacrifice in the United States and it is with great honor that the ODMP pays a lasting tribute to each of these officers by preserving their memories within its pages.
We are a group of officers, deputies, military and civilians that borrowed the concept of Highway of Heroes from our Canadian neighbors as our way of acknowledging and paying tribute to Arizona law enforcement men and women that have lost their lives in the line of duty. We created this site as a way for people to learn, understand and hopefully join us on the funeral routes with an American or Arizona flag to salute the procession and officer who gave their life in the line of duty. We hope you join us along the route in saluting these heroes who gave their all protecting us. We hand out between 2000 – 3000 American Flags or more along the funeral routes to mark the route.
We believe bringing the community together with law enforcement during this time of tragedy can help the sorrow pass and strengthen the community. Please join us by getting your organization or yourself involved by signing up on our website for notifications and request as many friends in your community help us pass out flags/participate along the route when there is a funeral. We hope this doesn’t occur but could use your assistance when it does.
