Welcome to the POMFCC Website
The Peace Officers Memorial Foundation of Cook County (POMFCC), Illinois is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to honoring all police and peace officers killed in the line of duty in Cook County. To date, over 760 officers have been killed from over 180 law enforcement agencies that work every day in Cook County on the Federal, State, County and municipal and local levels.
We aim to establish the first-ever Cook County Peace Officers Memorial honoring their sacrifice. This memorial is being funded through private donations and we ask for your help. " We recently unveiled a modified memorial design of the proposed police memorial. We are confident this new design will be approved and become a reality in the not-too-distant future. We are working hard to raise another $200,000 so we can break ground on this project."
Please consider supporting this cause by donating by clicking the "Make a Donation" button. Your generosity is critical to the success of this fundraising campaign.
All contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Thank you for your support.
