The purpose of the First Responders Program is to pay respect to Law Enforcement Officers and Fire Fighters who are killed or wounded in the line of duty. It is administered by the National Public Safety Officer who is working with Department Commanders to expand the program throughout the nation. It is now in the second year of a three year pilot project and is growing.
Selected Department Commanders are currently appointing First Responder Coordinators to establish and maintain Department-wide programs, involving assigned Chapters, to honor these heroic members of our community. In turn, Chapter Commanders are appointing First Responder coordinators to work with their Department counterparts and the National Public Safety Officer.
Public Safety Officers KILLED in the line of duty are recognized by awarding the MOPH Memorial Plaques which are available from Personalized Just For You, LLC.
Public Safety Officers WOUNDED in the line of duty are recognized by awarding an MOPH Citation which is available from MOPH National Headquarters.
