MISSION STATEMENT

Badges Supporting Fallen Officers’ Families

Fallen’s mission is to provide immediate direct financial support to the survivors of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.


WHY WE NEED FALLEN

In the last five years, our nation has suffered an average of 164 officer deaths per year, an “in the line of duty” death every 2.2 days.


FALLEN FACTS

99% of officers killed in the line of duty leave behind minor children along with their significant other.

On May 30th, we lost another American hero bringing the total number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty in our country this year to 47 officers.

Lieutenant Steven Whitstine of the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office in Baton Rogue, Louisiana, was killed in an automobile crash.

Lieutenant Whitstine was en route to the sheriff's office when his patrol vehicle left the roadway, struck a tree, and overturned. He suffered fatal injuries as a result of the collision. His canine partner suffered minor injuries and was treated at a local veterinarian. It is believed that Lieutenant Whitstine suffered a medical emergency immediately prior to the crash.

Lieutenant Whitstine had served with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office for 8 years and had previously served with the Baker Police Department for 9 years.

He is survived by his wife and children.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and co-workers.
