About The Fallen Officers and The Robert L. Zore Foundation: Rosemary Zore was only 7 years old when she lost her father Robert L. Zore, a Miami Police Officer on Christmas Day 1983. Rosemary always wanted to do something to not only honor her late father but to also help other families all over the country that have also lost a loved one in the line of duty. Our mission is to remember our fallen officers and to honor their families. Our main slogan is “Remembering Their Sacrifices and Honoring Their Families." Our goal is to unite the community with law enforcement and bring back respect for the badge.
