Law Enforcement Ambassador Spotlight: Brent Clark


Law Enforcement Ambassador Spotlight: Brent Clark

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund enjoys the support of a special group of volunteers: Law Enforcement Ambassadors and Guardians. Law Enforcement Ambassadors are active and retired law enforcement officers from city, state, federal and military law enforcement agencies, while Law Enforcement Guardians are volunteers who support and honor law enforcement but are not sworn officers, allowing citizens, family members and corporate supporters to work closely with the Memorial Fund in achieving their goals.

This month, we honor Law Enforcement Ambassador Brent Clark, who has been an Ambassador for the past four years. Not only has Brent volunteered countless hours during National Police Week and throughout the year, he works closely with our staff to coordinate our Law Enforcement Appreciation events with professional sports teams across the country.

Brent is an active federal law enforcement agent. Originally from Michigan, he has been assigned to the New York City area, but is currently back in Michigan on special assignment. Brent not only volunteers his personal time and energy to support the mission of the Memorial Fund and Museum, he is also a personal donor to the “A Matter of Honor” Campaign to build the National Law Enforcement Museum.

Brent has volunteered countless hours outside of National Police Week and was responsible for making the November 2011 – Detroit Red Wings Law Enforcement Appreciation Night a great success. Brent worked closely with Memorial Fund staff, the Detroit Red Wings and Michigan law enforcement to organize the event, which raised over $18,000 for the Museum campaign.

Brent is currently working with the Detroit Tigers to organize another Law Enforcement Appreciation Night which will be held on April 19, 2012 at Comerica Park. Ten dollars of every Law Enforcement Appreciation Night ticket will be donated to the Museum campaign and ticket buyers will receive a limited edition Memorial Fund/Detroit Tigers challenge coin.

Brent Clark was also instrumental in helping the Museum acquire a steel beam from the World Trade Center after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He is an honored member of the Memorial Fund’s extended family and we recognize, with gratitude, his service and leadership to our country and our organization.
