Behind the Badge Foundation's Line of Duty Death Response Team (LODDRT) is sanctioned by the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs (WASPC). The LODDRT is a support to affected law enforcement agencies upon the death of one of their own.  The team serves at the discretion of the agency.  The LODDRT members are experts in their field.  The team has no agenda for itself.  All team members are certified under the Incident Command System (ICS). 

The LODDRT brings the affected agency information on:
• Ceremonial honors due
• Family support
• Benefit coordination for the family
• Behind the Badge Foundation financial resources to defray the cost of the memorial ceremony
• Peace of mind – over 15 years of experience in responding to line of duty deaths

The LODDRT responds at no cost to the affected agency.
