    Net proceeds from the Run for the Badge support the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum’s (NLEMM) mission to tell the story of American law enforcement, honor the fallen and make it safer for those who serve.

    A nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization headquartered in Washington, DC, the (NLEMM) maintains the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, the nation’s monument to law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. NLEMM also manages the first-ever National Law Enforcement Museum, adjacent to the Memorial. The Museum offers a high-tech approach to telling the story of American law enforcement through interactive exhibits, collections, research, and education.

    The NLEMM is a principal organizer of the National Police Week observance each May and hosts a Candlelight Vigil on the National Mall in Washington, DC to dedicate the newly engraved names of the fallen and to honor all fallen law enforcement officers. In addition, the NLEMM maintains the largest, most comprehensive database of line-of-duty officer deaths, conducts research to identify emerging trends and findings of officer fatalities, and serves as an information clearinghouse to improve officer safety.
