Michigan Law Enforcement Memorial Launches New Website
February 06, 2018
Fundraising efforts continue to honor Michigan’s fallen officers
In the ongoing efforts to pay tribute to those that have given their lives in protection of all Michiganders, The Michigan Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Monument Fund Commission unveiled a new website today at https://www.michigan.gov/mleom.
The new, easy-to-use site provides information about the Commission and efforts underway to fund and build a memorial monument to pay tribute to the approximately 600 Michigan law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
“This new website clearly lays out the vision for our memorial honoring the brave officers who sacrificed everything to keep us all safe,” said John Szczubelek, assistant attorney general and chairperson of the Michigan Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Monument Fund Commission. “Visitors can easily access donation opportunities as well as see major project milestones.”
The new website features a simplified donation process, a feature the Commission hopes will push them over their $350,000 fundraising goal.
“All donations leading up to Oct. 1, 2018 are doubled through a state matching grant,” Szczubelek stated. “Each and every donation, no matter how large or how small, is important in making the Michigan Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Monument a reality.”
The Commission asks residents and businesses to consider donating to support the Michigan Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Monument. Tax deductible donations can be made online by visiting https://www.michigan.gov/mleom.
The website was redesigned through a collaboration between the Commission and the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget.
The Michigan Legislature created the Michigan Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Monument Fund 12 years ago to oversee the financing, design and construction of a permanent memorial monument to honor the approximately 600 Michigan law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
