California Peace Officer Memorial Foundation Fund
Contributions will be used to preserve the memory of California's fallen peace officers and assist the families they left behind. Since statehood, over 1,300 courageous California peace officers have made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting law-abiding citizens. The non-profit charitable organization, California Peace Officer's Memorial Fund, has accepted the privilege and responsibility of maintaining a memorial for fallen officers on the state capital grounds.
Each May, the memorial foundation conducts a dignified ceremony honoring fallen officers and their surviving families by offering moral support, crisis counseling, and financial support that includes academic scholarships for the children for the children of those officers who have made the supreme sacrifice.
