An officer is killed in the line of duty every 65 hours. Throughout history, there have been more line of duty deaths in the State of Texas than any other state or territory. The Texas Police Chiefs Association’s Fallen Officer Fund provides monetary assistance to Texas families of fallen heroes within 24 hours following an oficer’s line of duty death.

The TXFallenPD Tribute Event is a community event that takes place at The Shops of Highland Village.  Activities include a 5K run and civilian bike race in the morning and a Police Officer bike race and a Police Officer Obstacle Course Competition in the afternoon. There is live music, demonstrations, raffle prizes, a silent auction, kid zone, food, and drinks throughout the day.

The TXFallenPD Civilian Bike Race course also starts and finishes at the Shops of Highland Village and is new for 2018. The race will be an approximately 21  mile road race through the City of Highland Village and surrounding area.  The road race will be part of the morning activities.
