Peace Officers Memorial Foundation



  Candlelight and Memorial Services


The foundation hosts annual memorial ceremonies on the grounds of the State Capitol Complex in Austin.

During odd numbered years, when the legislature is in session, the foundation hosts  both a candlelight vigil in the evening and a memorial ceremony on the following day.   These services are held the first week of May.

Every year, the foundation hosts a memorial tribute in conjunction with the annual Ride for the Fallen.  This year, the ride will be on Saturday, May 4, 2013.
