Brotherhood for the Fallen was established in March 2010. Our mission is to honorably attend the services of Fallen Officers across the United States & Canada who have made the ultimate sacrifice, giving his/her life during the performance of their duties, by providing safety for citizens.
Our goal is to attend the services to give support to the families, department, and communities, and also to provide the family with a monetary donation.
Brotherhood for the Fallen is a nationally recognized 501(c) (3) organization comprised of Chicago Police Officers that physically and financially demonstrate support to Officers that have been murdered in the line of duty, across the United States of America and Canada. Our founders created this organization after attending the services of three of the most devastating law enforcement tragedies in our nation’s recent history in 2009 and 2010. These horrific events occurred in Oakland, CA; Pittsburg, PA; and Lakewood, WA. It resulted in the murders of eleven of our Brothers and Sisters in Blue. Our members honor these true American Heroes by participating in the funeral services and providing a financial donation to the families of the fallen police officers. Our hope is that the families can use this immediate financial support to help with their day to day obligations. Their lives are forever changes by the sudden violent act that has left them without a family member that may have been their sole provider.
Through membership dues and generous community partner donations, we are able to send two Brotherhood members, in full CPD ‘dress blues’ uniforms to the locations across this great country where an officer has been murdered in the line of duty. Since our inception in March of 2010, our members have been deployed to over 300 services. As well as offering support to the families, Brotherhood for the Fallen officers support to the fallen officers Police Department and the surrounding community.
In addition to the aforementioned mission, our organization and its members have rendered to offer support in natural disasters to First Responders and victims of the affected community. As recent as 2015, Brotherhood for the Fallen members offered aid to tornado stricken Kirkland, Illinois as well as Moore, Oklahoma and Washington, Illinois in 2013.
