Heroes Behind The Badge: Sacrifice & Survival

Author: 
Meghan Reed

Heroes Behind The Badge: Sacrifice & Survival is the new highly anticipated follow up documentary film to the original Heroes Behind The Badge, released in 2012. Heroes Behind The Badge: Sacrifice & Survival not only features the harrowing stories of the fallen, but also focuses on the incredibly inspiring stories of those who have been critically injured in the line of duty and have survived against all odds.

This new film tells the stories of brave officers who have laid down their lives in the line of duty and also the stories of the countless officers each year who are physically disabled, many of them permanently, in violent confrontations.

Fifty percent of the net proceeds will go directly back to support the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (http://www.nleomf.org/).

Heroes Behind The Badge: Sacrifice & Survival aims to change the way we look at the men and women of law enforcement and recognize these officers for the supreme sacrifices they make to protect and serve the public.

There will be a screening of Heroes Behind The Badge: Sacrifice & Survival during our Annual Conference in Fort Worth, TX on June 23rd at 4:45pm.
