Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to pay tribute to the men and women in law enforcement who give their lives in the line of duty, to support their survivors, and to ensure that offenders who have been found guilty of murdering a law enforcement officer remain behind bars for their full sentence.

ODMP sends Line of Duty Death notifications and maintains a Memorial and Reflection page for each officer, including K9s, who dies in the line of duty.

We support their survivors in conjunction with Concerns of Police Survivors with a comprehensive, state-by-state benefits database to ensure that the survivors receive assistance and support.

ODMP runs a No Parole program to notify the public via email and social media when a cop killer is eligible for parole so that citizens may write letters requesting that those inmates are kept behind bars.

Additionally, ODMP works with programs and initiatives that aim to reduce line of duty deaths across the nation and provide officers with training and equipment to lower the number of LODDs we see each year.

Finally, ODMP organizes a motorcycle Memorial Ride and the National Police Week 5K each year to raise awareness of the number of law enforcement deaths annually and to honor those who gave their lives in service.

ODMP maintains an extensive database with each line of duty death in the US stretching back to 1791.

We work with COPS to maintain an up-to-date, state-by-state survivor benefits database.

We have volunteers who track parole eligibility of cop killers for our No Parole program.

We have been successful in raising awareness of the number of line of duty deaths that occur annually, however more could be done to educate the public on the causes of LODDs and how to lower those numbers.

Our No Parole program has seen most of the offenders denied parole, however we could do more to ensure we are aware of all the cases nationally.
