Officer Kozminski (GRPD) Memorial

As advocates and friends of the Grand Rapids Police Department (GRPD)  we are raising funds to commemorate all of the Fallen GRPD officers with a special homage to one officer who is near and dear to our hearts, Officer Bob Kozminski

In their memory we are looking to create a permanent plaque at Richmond Park to solidify their legacies and pay respect to these fine men and women. Specifically, we will need funds for the following: Plaque, Stone structure behind plaque, brick walkway as well as routine maintenance.

This memorial will ensure that these American Heroes will never be forgotten which is something their families fight to ensure every day.

Any money raised above and beyond will be donated to the Kozminski Foundation which provides scholarships to a future police officers. 

This renewable scholarship is to be awarded to a student at Grand Rapids Community College whose career goal is law enforcement and attends the Police Academy. The student is selected by the parents of Officer Kozminski, Mr and Mrs. Richard Kozminski. The first year's tuition at Grand Rapids Community College is paid in full for the recipient. Scholarships recipients who achieve a 3.0 grade point average or better have their second year fully funded, as well.
The family of Robert (Bobby) Kozminski established this scholarship in the hope that Bobby's memory and sacrifice will always be kept alive in the city that he served and protected for seven years. It is an honor to help potential police officers receive a quality education at Grand Rapids Community College, where Bobby was a Police Academy graduate before his career as a public servant with the Grand Rapids Police Department.
Thank you in advance for your support!
