Remember the sacrifice that was made, and never forget that a hero remembered never dies.
Those words are what the Back the Badge Campaign is all about. Remembering the law enforcement animal heroes along side their human heroes whose names are etched on the Nebraska Law Enforcement Memorial Wall.
The campaign is underway to raise $25,000-$30,000 to expand the NE Law Enforcement memorial to honor the sacrifices made by the service animals.

The Nebraska Law Enforcement Memorial on the grounds at Fonner Park in Grand Island, Nebraska was dedicated Monday, May 11, 2009. The dark granite memorial with 141 names etched into it's surface honors those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, and to those who still answer the call. We honor them.
In order to keep their memory alive and their stories told, the memorial committee hosts an annual memorial ceremony which is a celebration of the life and contributions of the individuals whose names appear on the wall. And through this celebration we remember them, the brave, the children, brothers, sisters, and community members who gave their lives to protect the citizens of Nebraska. We honor them.
The roll call you see on this website honors those who have lost their lives as recently as 2015 and reaches as far back as 1866. Unfortunately, the memorial and these pages will never be static. As officers continue to answer the call, the memorial will be ever changing. We honor them.
