The Memorial is under the oversight of the Oregon Law Enforcement Memorial Trust Fund Committee, a 501C3 non-profit. This Committee administers funds raised from the Oregon Fallen Public Safety Officer License Plate and proudly sponsors both the Fallen Firefighter and Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremonies held at the Academy each year.
The Oregon Fallen Public Safety Officer License plate was developed during the 2009 legislative session to honor Oregon fallen firefighters and law enforcement officers that are killed in the line of duty. Money earned from the Fallen Public Safety Officer License plate is placed in a fund managed by the Oregon Law Enforcement Memorial Trust Fund which is a special committee comprised of law enforcement, fire department, and citizen members. Proceeds from the Oregon Fallen Public Safety Officer License plate support the law enforcement and fire memorials located at the Oregon Public Safety Academy, financial support for families and honor guard members traveling to Emmitsburg, MD for the National Fallen Firefighter Memorial or Washington, D.C. for the National Law Enforcement Memorial in the year the fallen officer is honored, Oregon Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors, Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation, Oregon Fire Service Honor Guard, NW Peer Support Team, and the pla cement of Oregon Fallen Officer Memorial Highway signs.
