The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and Modern City Entertainment announced that Emmy Award-nominated feature film actor and National Law Enforcement Museum National spokesperson Vincent D’Onofrio signed on to narrate “Heroes Behind the Badge,” a documentary about the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers serving across America.
Directed by two-time British Academy Award-winner Wayne Derrick and set for release in fall 2012, “Heroes Behind the Badge” aims to change the way the public perceives the men and women of law enforcement. The film will highlight some of the selfless acts of bravery law enforcement professionals commit each day in the line of duty, according to an event press release.
Some filming for the documentary took place in Fond du Lac in May. Filmmakers interviewed Fond du Lac Police Officer Ryan Williams about the March 2011 shooting that injured him and his poice dog, Grendel. Officer Craig Birkholz died during the incident.
Vincent D’Onofrio’s work includes playing a lead in “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” from 2001 to 2011, according to the Internet Movie Database. He has also appeared in numerous films.
D’Onofrio is dedicated to the law enforcement community and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. His work with “Heroes Behind the Badge” joins a long list of ways D’Onofrio has continually shown his support for law enforcement.
“We are thrilled to have Vincent D’Onofrio working with us,” said “Heroes Behind the Badge” Director Wayne Derrick. “I could not think of a more fitting person to narrate this inspiring film.”
Filmed throughout the U.S., “Heroes Behind the Badge” will highlight the lives of four fallen officers and the enormous impact their deaths had on family, colleagues and the community. The film will also feature the stories of three officers who narrowly escaped their assailants. Survivors will share their personal insights about how their near-fatal encounters affected their lives.
