The Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation has a multidisciplinary Line of Duty Death Response Team comprised of public safety professionals, law enforcement survivors, and citizens ready and available to respond at a moment’s notice to the request of any law enforcement agency in the state of Oregon that has experienced a line of duty death. These members ensure that the memorial service to honor the fallen law enforcement officer provides him or her with the highest honors. The Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation will pay for the costs incurred by a line of duty death memorial service, including those associated with the planning, preparation, and execution of the ceremony, and to provide support for the survivors of a fallen officer.
