Mesa PDWe honor these brave officers and their families.

Sadly, across the country, many law enforcement officers will lose their lives this year while performing their duties. The Steve Young Memorial Scholarship Program, created by a $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, is administered by the National Fraternal Order of Police Foundation to assist the spouses of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.

It’s not how these deputies died that makes them heroes. It’s how they lived.

Dedicated to these brave deputies who have been given the last call and their families.
