About Behind the Badge Foundation

Behind the Badge Foundation provides comprehensive support to Washington state’s law enforcement agencies, families and communities after an officer has died or suffered serious injury in the line of duty.  Behind the Badge Foundation serves survivors of a line of duty death. (Spouses, children, parents, siblings, significant others, in-laws, affected co-workers and chaplains.) Behind the Badge also serves law enforcement officers who continue to serve and protect our communities, and their families.

We are a trusted resource for the law enforcement community during times of critical need.

Our experience and resolve allow us to act swiftly and thoroughly in the midst of crisis.

Because we have walked in their shoes, we bring compassion and understanding to communities rocked by tragedy.

We connect individuals and families with a broad network of ongoing support, providing comfort and security when it’s needed most.

We are the creators and stewards of the Washington State Law Enforcement Memorial, commemorating the lives, work and dedication of officers who have died in service to our state.
