The Raleigh Police Memorial Foundation is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to honoring Raleigh’s fallen police officers. The Foundation’s primary mission is to honor Raleigh police officers who have given the ultimate sacrifice and to pledge that their unselfish acts and commitment to protecting others will never be forgotten. Monies raised will go towards efforts in designing, creating and building a memorial to honor Raleigh police officers who have died in the line of duty while serving the City of Raleigh.
