Welcome to the Forsyth County Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation!
Proclaimed in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy, May 15 has been dedicated as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week which the date falls in as National Police Week. Each year law enforcement officers from around the world converge on our Nation's Capital to pay respect to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.<!--[endif]-->
Our Foundation organizes local events during the Memorial week and throughout the year to ensure our local officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten and to honor our officers who put their lives on the line for us every day.
We hope that you will join us at one or all of our events throughout the year!
Our primary goal is to build a memorial for all Forsyth County law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. We also hope to establish a scholarship fund for families of law enforcement officers, provide funds to families of officers killed or injured in the line of duty, and provide funds to the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund to support the greater cause on a National level.

who we respect for their dedication to the cause,
when faced with danger, they never pause.
We remember the officers who always stood true,
the color of uniform, brown, gray, or blue,
pride and integrity they say "To serve and protect"
the giving of their life, we offer our respect.
We remember the officers who we never
Persons strong enough to answer the
challenge are few,
With heavy hearts we mourn the officers in
There's more to these people than the
badge on their chest.
