Heroes Behind The Badge, law enforcement documentary comes to Rockford

A documentary film that takes an in-depth look at law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line and survived, and those who made the ultimate sacrifice, is coming to West Michigan.

The 90-minute film by Modern City Entertainment was produced in partnership with the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and was filmed throughout the United States, Heroes Behind the Badge highlights the lives of our 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. Heroes Behind the Badge also highlights National Police Week events held in Washington, DC, including the annual May 13th Candlelight Vigil and the annual National Peace Officers Memorial Day service held at the U.S. Capitol on May 15.

Heroes Behind The Badge will be shown on Saturday, March 2nd, at the Rockford High School Auditorium Performing Arts Center at 3:00pm and 7:00pm. Tickets are $8.00 for adults and $5.00 for students and can be purchased at the door. All proceeds go to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. The Rockford screening is sponsored by Rockford Public Schools, Choice One Bank, the West Michigan Law Enforcement Community and the Grand Rapids Community College Police Academy.
