The Police Memorial Foundation
As we begin the new year, the Police Memorial Foundation would like to express its gratitude to the men and women of the Chicago Police Department whose tremendous continued support has been instrumental in making the police memorial a reality. As a result of your efforts the Police Memorial Foundation has developed a solid financial base of contributions that, together with the generous support from the private sector, has resulted in hard contributions and pledged commitments that will allow the beginning of construction of the memorial early this spring as the weather permits.
It is the firm commitment of the Police Memorial Foundation to ensure that this memorial will, without question, be the finest in the nation to honor our fallen heroes. With that overriding goal in mind it is anticipated that with your continued generosity the memorial will be completed by this fall and an endowment fund will also be in place to assist police officers and their families in times of need for catastrophic occurrences.
