$20 Million Given in Assistance to Chicago Police Families in Need

The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to honoring the lives of our fallen heroes. The Foundation provides support and assistance to the families of Chicago police officers who are killed or catastrophically injured in the line of duty.

Helmets for Heroes

The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation continues to answer the call for help. Upon being asked by the Superintendent, CPMF immediately purchased 1,750 ballistic helmets for our officers on the frontlines. These new, upgraded helmets include Kevlar protection and laser beam reflectors on the face shield.

CPMF License Plates

Specialty license plates for both vehicles and motorcycles featuring the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation’s logo are available for purchase through the IL Secretary of State. These plates are permanent and renewable.

Stay up to date on what’s happening. We’ll post news regarding our events, ceremonies and other topics of interest here.

Get Behind the Vest

A vest isn’t bulletproof forever. It wears out. It breaks down. It needs to be replaced every 5 years. That’s why we need your help. Your donation ensures that every officer out there protecting you is protected.

Please take a moment to read about Officers William Marsek and Bruce Garrison. They were both killed in the line of duty on the same day in February 1974. 50 years have since past, but they have not been forgotten. #neverforget

I visited his grave today and trimmed up his headstone .

Also killed in line James (Jim Alfano) shot and killed Aug 1970. Great guy, friend of family. My sister’s brother in law. Never forget.

Rest in peace officers.

What an incredible weekend for Get Behind the Vest! On Saturday, WGN's David Hochberg hosted the Vest-a-Thon fundraiser from 10am-1pm. The telethon featured special guests Dan Hampton and David Eigenberg , and prizes!
Then, on Sunday, Ald. Matt O'Shea hosted his annual Pancake Breakfast. This event featured delicious breakfast (of course!), a quilt raffle, and visits from CPD's Mounted Police and K9. The neighborhood and police supporters from near and far filled the basement of St. John Fisher the entire time!
THANK YOU to everyone involved in making these events the tremendous success that they are, including all of the volunteers. We are so grateful for the support!

Check out some great pics from both events here: cpdmemorial.smugmug.com/2024-WGN-Vest-a-Thon and here: cpdmemorial.smugmug.com/2024-19th-Ward-Pancake-Breakfast

Great food for a Great Cause

I always go but it would be nice and this is just a thought to maybe have a table there with at least two officers during the event. Kids love those stickers.
