Heroes Behind The Badge

Last night I had a chance to see an early premier of the new documentary film “Heroes Behind The Badge”. It was excellent!

This very moving film follows the stories of several heroes and their families. Some of these heroes perished in 2011 and the film follows their families from the incident, through the memorial ceremony during National Police Week at the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C.

This inspiring documentary was created to change the way we look at… the men and women of law enforcement and highlight the unselfish acts of bravery they commit each day in the line of duty. Its stories will be powerful, emotional, insightful, and educational.

Thanks to their partnership with the U.S. National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF), active duty police officers, retired officers, and family members of the fallen, audiences will experience what it’s really like to walk the thin blue line.

The film is currently being screened around North America and you can also purchase a DVD or Blu Ray copy. 50% of the net proceeds from the film will benefit the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

Produced by Modern City Entertainment, “Heroes Behind The Badge” highlights the lives of four fallen officers and the enormous impact their passing has had on their family members, colleagues, and community. The film also features the stories of three officers who narrowly escaped their assailants. These living legends share their personal insights about how their near-fatal encounters have affected their lives.

The concept of “True Blue Valor™” is where one law enforcement officer has to muster the courage to confront a peer who is slipping both professionally and personally and endangering themselves, their peers and the public. It takes a system of organizational support and professional leadership to support and foster the concept of courage and intervention. We will train your trainers to deliver this program to your agency.
