Since April of 2016 West Grand Neighborhood Organization has partnered with Brann's Steakhouse & Grille to raise money for a Grand Rapids Police Park Memorial at Richmond Park. This memorial will be to honor our fallen Grand Rapids Police Officers and will be placed at Richmond Park. We are almost there!!


In total our goal is to raise $65,000. $30,000 would get the memorial built, and another $35,000 to contribute to the Robert A. Kozminski Memorial Scholarship, which pays for one year of full tuition at Grand Rapids Community College for a student whose goal is to work in law enforcement. The recipient is chosen by Kozminski’s parents. A maintenance fund will also be established for the memorial.


There are two ways residents, businesses and supporters can help! People will be able to purchase a engraved brick (two sizes available) that will be utilized in the design of the memorial. If a supporter cannot purchase a brick, they can also make a donation of any amount. Every little bit helps!


Every supporter who donates or purchases a brick will be listed on the program at the dedication ceremony! The bricks and donations are tax DEDUCTIBLE!
