This second full-length documentary film will not only tell the stories of brave officers who have laid down their lives in the line of duty. But also the stories of the countless officers each year who are physically disabled, many of them permanently, in violent confrontations.
Produced in partnership with Craig Floyd and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, the second installment of this powerful documentary series takes place in various corners of America and follows the stories of two officers who paid the ultimate price, as well as the stories of three severely injured officers who are now battling through the painstaking process of recovery.
Heroes Behind The Badge: Sacrifice & Survival will also be available on DVDand Full HD Blu-ray in early December, through the NLEOMF's online store. To be placed on a pre-order list, please click here.
Upon completion of the film, 50% of the net proceeds will go directly back to support the non-profit National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
The film also takes viewers to New York City’s 9/11 Memorial site, where many officers perished on that fateful day in 2001, and to National Police Week in Washington, DC, where the fallen are honored each year.
Directed by British Academy Award winning filmmaker Wayne Derrick, and narrated by Law & Order's Vincent D'Onofrio, this highly anticipated follow-up documentary to the original Heroes Behind The Badge film is a tribute to the heroes of law enforcement who have suffered through life-threatening injuries and are fighting their way back, and to those who are gone, but not forgotten.
