$15 Million Given in Assistance to Chicago Police Families in Need

The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to honoring the lives of our fallen heroes. The Foundation provides support and assistance to the families of Chicago police officers who are killed or catastrophically injured in the line of duty.

Helmets for Heroes

The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation continues to answer the call for help. Upon being asked by the Superintendent, CPMF immediately purchased 1,650 ballistic helmets for our officers on the frontlines. These new, upgraded helmets include Kevlar protection and laser beam reflectors on the face shield.

CPMF License Plates

Specialty license plates for both vehicles and motorcycles featuring the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation’s logo are available for purchase through the IL Secretary of State. These plates are permanent and renewable.
