May marks police memorial month.

The Quad Cities Law Enforcement Officers Memorial is having three upcoming events tailored toward this.

  1. Officer appreciation dinner and auction/raffle on Friday April 25th 2014. This is a public event where the public can come out and support our area law enforcement officers. Dinner is catered by Texas Roadhouse and the event is held at the Eldridge Community Center. Doors open at 6:00p.m. the meal is served at 6:40p.m. Online tickets are discounted through Thursday. $15.00/$5.00 (At the door Tickets are $20.00 for adults and Kids are $5.00). Kid’s meal is: hotdog, mac n cheese, cookies and drink. The adult meal is: rib eye steak, baked potato, green beans, salad, sweet rolls and cookies. Pop and beer are included with meal. This event helps fund the memorial by up keeping the memorial site, the rolling memorial custom squad car and to provide support to the families. We need to update and remodel our memorial site and need funding in order to do this project.

We always show a tribute video. This year there is a section honoring Kevin Marxen from the Davenport Police Department who recently died while training off duty.

  1. QC Police Memorial Service on May 4th 2014 at 1:30p.m. This year it will be at Bethany Baptist Church in Moline Illinois. Immediately following the church service we will have a procession to the Justice Center in Rock Island Illinois where our memorial site is located. The names of the fallen officers will be read and a family member of officer or a fellow police officer will place a flower on a wreath in their memory.

  2. Pizza Ranch in Bettendorf on May 5th. 5:00p.m. – 9:00p.m. Area officers and committee members will be serving, refilling drinks and clearing tables. Pizza Ranch is donating 10% of the sales to the QCLEOM and any tips will go to the memorial as well.
