For the past 6 years the Police Hall of Fame has utilized a beautiful visual image to aid in remembering fallen heroes. This image came to be called “The Hill of Remembrance”. Each year flags are posted on the hillside out front of the Hall of Fame in honor of each family survivor currently in Hall of Fame programs. This past May, during Police Week, 12,110 flags were posted.
This year’s survivor activity was a great success as the forecasted rain held off for everyone to enjoy a full day at Kennedy Space Center. The Visitor Complex at the Space Center is a huge attraction filled with incredible exhibits from the U.S. space program. Although the weather was hot and humid it was certainly nice and cool inside the air-conditioned food tent specially prepared by Kennedy Space Center and Delaware North for the Hall of Fame’s visiting family survivors. Each year the survivor activity is different so be sure to stay in touch to r.s.v.p. for next year’s service as soon as event registration opens.
On Saturday, May 21st, over 600 family survivors got together for a fantastic luncheon and an "out of this world" adventure at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
Plans are underway now for the 2017 Police Memorial Day events. The dates are May 19th-20th, 2017

The 2016 Police Hall of Fame Memorial Service was very well attended by survivor families from around the country. Beautiful weather and a nice breeze allowed the crowd to relax and be comfortable during the outdoor evening service.
An extraordinarily large contingent from the mounted posse as well as a mule drawn caisson and caparisoned horse were on hand and made a grand entrance into the service area just prior to the Central Florida Pipe & Drum Band’s ceremonial opening song. Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey provided a passion filled and the singers and hand bell choir all performed well adding just the right flavoring to the service.
