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 September 15th, 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 106 officers.

Chief of Police Frank McClelland of the Ludowici Police Department in Ludowici, Georgia, was struck and killed by a vehicle being pursued by other officers.

The pursuit had started in Liberty County and continued through Hinesville and into Long County at speeds topping 100 mph. Chief McClelland was attempting to stop traffic at an intersection when the vehicle struck him. The vehicle then left the roadway and fatally struck a motorcyclist at an adjacent gas station before coming to rest.

Chief of Police McCllelland had served in various law enforcement agencies for 30 years. He was a U.S Air Force veteran.

He is survived by his wife, daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

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