Who We Are
The Badge of Honor Association focuses on supporting the families of Police Officers in the event of a line of duty death, and those officers involved in critical or serious incidents while on duty. We cover all law enforcement across 25 counties of Western and Central New York.
How We Help
The Badge of Honor Association provides much needed support for officers who are involved in critical incidents by donating financially to officers involved in critical incidents as well as provides a network of support that brings awareness, counseling, education and recognition to the officers involved. Additionally, BOHA provides gift certificates, weekend get-aways, and other methods to assist the officer and their family during difficult times.
In addition, we aim to support children of fallen officers in Western and Central New York through events including an annual weekend retreat for families and BOHA’s Shop with a Cop program for children during the holidays. Both events are organized by regional volunteers and rely on community donations and support to continue.
In 2017, BOHA implemented the newest program, Books and Board, which is for the children of fallen officers attending college. This program provides funding for college books and housing for their children.
