History of the Fund

Congress established the United States Capitol Police Memorial Fund (P.L. 105-233) following the tragic shooting of two USCP officers as they defended the U.S. Capitol from a lone gunman on July 24, 1998.  

Two decades later, two officers were seriously injured while protecting Members of Congress during an active shooter incident on June 14, 2017.  After that attack, Congress expanded the Memorial Fund (P.L. 115-45) to allow financial support to employees who sustained serious line-of-duty injuries, or to the families of employees killed in the line of duty.

Today, contributions to the Memorial Fund continue to provide generous support to the families of our fallen officers, as well as to United States Capitol Police employees who are seriously injured in the line of duty.
