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 11th, 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 43 officers.

Sergeant Kelvin Ansari of the Savannah Police Department in Savannah, Georgia, was shot and killed as he attempted to apprehend a robbery suspect.

Sergeant Ansari and other officers had responded to a robbery that occurred at a barbershop. The suspect was believed to have left the area but was inside a nearby vehicle. As Sergeant Ansari checked the area, the subject exited and opened fire on him and another officer, striking them both. The subject fled into a nearby residential area where he was found a short time later hiding in a shed. As responding officers ordered him to surrender, he exited the shed and opened fire again. He was fatally wounded by return gunfire.

Sergeant Ansari had served with the Savannah Police Department for 10 years. He was retired from the U.S. Army.

He is survived by his wife and four children.

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