MISSION STATEMENT

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

FALLEN FACTS

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

On May 31st, 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 67 officers.

Trooper First Class Walter Greene of the Connecticut State Police died from illnesses he contracted while inhaling toxic materials as he participated in the rescue and recovery efforts at the World Trade Center site following the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

Trooper Greene and his canine, along with other members of the Connecticut State Police's search and rescue team, had responded to the World Trade Center immediately following the attacks to search for possible survivors.

Trooper Greene had served with the Connecticut State Police for 28 years. He was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran.

He is survived by his wife and three sons.

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