Policing is dangerous work. It is a known risk to all who don the badge each day. Law Enforcement United's mission is to honor the fallen and remember the survivors. Unfortunatly we are not exempt from the loss of our own members both on and off the job. We will continue to honor the fallen, as these members have, and remember their survivors they leave behind.
