to provide experiences that shape lives.
We band together

Welcome to Band of Blue

“Band of Blue” is a nonprofit organization with a nationwide focus on providing support to the children of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. Our mission is to impact the lives of the children of these fallen heros. Every day, all across this country, brave men and women will put their lives on the line. They will say goodbye to their families not knowing if they will return home at the end of their shift. Each year, approximately 150 law enforcement officers will not return home. Through our efforts, Band of Blue will provide assurance to these children that they will forever be part of this great law enforcement family. Band of Blue is about family, our law enforcement family.
