Welcome to the  Peace Officers' Memorial Foundation

2015 Peace Officers’ Memorial Services

   Texans turned out in force to honor its fallen police peace officers with three days of tributes capped by a moving ceremony at the State Capitol in early May.
  The tribute kicked off with the 14th Annual Ride for the Fallen, which this year drew a record 620-plus riders and more than 560 motorcycles entered. The riders made their way from the Central Texas Harley-Davidson dealership in Round Rock south the Texas Peace Officers Memorial on the Capitol grounds.
   The following evening, family, friends and supporters of the fallen assembled for a candlelight vigil at the monument where the names of the newly added fallen were read aloud.
   The tributes concluded with the ceremony on the Capitol’s South Steps that followed a milelong march of officers and honor guards. Land Commissioner George P. Bush gave the keynote address, telling loved ones:  "We can’t know the burden you bear; but we do know the debt we owe to you. “Your loved ones gave their last full measure for us. And we are eternally grateful.”
