Nice to have you join us! This is the place where I will share my experiences and knowledge of planning and facilitating dignified, meaningful law enforcement/public safety funerals and memorials. After all, you only get one chance to say that final goodbye, so you must plan ahead to do right by the officer's memory, his/her surviving family, agency members and their families. And you must not forget the community members who wish to share in the public expression of collective grief, as well as demonstrate their support for both the surviving family and the agency experiencing the loss.

Get it right, and attendees will remember it forever. Screw it up, and they'll also remember it forever, though not for the intended reasons, and that can affect how agency members and the community view the agency far into the future.

Feel free to email me any questions you may have, and I'll answer them here so that others may learn, too (unless, of course, you request it be answered privately.)

Check back often, because I have years of experience (and stories) about the sometimes surprising issues and predicaments that can arise, even with the most well-planned intentions!

For further information, check out my book Planning for the Unthinkable: A Law Enforcement Funeral Planning Guide available through my website
It's the most comprehensive law
enforcement funeral planning
resource you'll find anywhere.

See you again, soon!
