Local Sponsors Help Horses of Honor® Omaha Project to Gain Momentum

The Omaha Police Department and Omaha Police Foundation are proud to announce the roster of community sponsors standing in support of Horses of Honor® Omaha, an inspiring public art installation commemorating the fallen heroes of the Omaha Police Department.

Debuting Friday, May 20, 2016, Horses of Honor® Omaha will feature seven life-size statues of mounted patrol unit horses prominently displayed throughout Turner Park. An eighth horse is planned for the Omaha Police Headquarters. Each fabricated horse, designed by a local artist, will commemorate a fallen Omaha officer.

Ten anchors of the Omaha community are serving as Horses of Honor® Omaha sponsors, generously providing the funds to support fundraising initiatives, fabrication costs, statue transportation and other logistical needs.

Additional Project Sponsor

Additional sponsorship opportunities are available; interested parties are encouraged to visit HorsesOfHonorOmaha.com for details.

Horses of Honor® Omaha mirrors the original Horses of Honor® program in Chicago, which benefitted the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation.

Details, including project updates, site map and photos of the Chicago project are available online at HorsesOfHonorOmaha.com.

Net proceeds from the project will benefit the Omaha Police Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization working to ensure Omaha officers have the training and equipment they need to prevent crime, save lives and make Omaha a safer city.

“We would like to thank all of our project sponsors for partnering with us to celebrate the legacies of our fallen officers, bring the community together and support the vitally important work of the Omaha Police Foundation,” said Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer.
