For the past 5 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, 11,741 flags were posted.
Plans are underway now for the 2016 Police Memorial Day events.

This year’s survivor activity was a ton of fun. The theme was “Country Jamboree” and it truly was a jeans, boots n’ skirts event. The line to ride the mechanical bull was full all afternoon long with youngsters and oldsters doing their best to stay on top of the bull. Country music filled the eating area and provided much enjoyment to those dining on barbeque and watching the line dancing just off to the side. Family pictures were taken during the day along with the annual survivor photo. All in all it was a great day of socializing and fun and left everyone wondering what activity will be occurring next year.
On Saturday, May 16th, over 300 family survivors got together for a Luau at F. Burton Smith Regional Park in Cocoa, Florida. Authentic barbeque accompanied a country jamboree with a mechanical bull, line dancing , horse shoes and a hayride.
The following video was filmed by a guest of the American Police Hall of Fame & Museum. We would like to thank them for their contribution.
The 2015 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 was 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 Welcome that really stirred the crowd and the singers and hand bell choir all performed well adding just the right flavoring to the service.
