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 April 24th, 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 45 officers.

Master Deputy James Kirk of the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office in Lancaster, South Carolina, suffered a heart attack during a combat firearms training at the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office range.

Deputy Kirk had just completed the course that included a simulated officer down event in which he had to engage targets while moving a 125-pound sandbag to a cover. He collapsed as he walked back to the staging area.

Deputy Kirk had served with the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office for 3 years after having retired from the Lancaster Police Department with 25 years of service.

He is survived by his wife and four children.

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