"Heroes Behind the Badge" is a film produced by a former Miami Metro police officer after two of his best friends were killed in 2011, said Sandusky police Lt. Robert Vanscoy.

"It's a documentary film featuring men and women of law enforcement that have met some pretty hard encounters, and some that didn't survive the encounters," he said.

"It really just touches into the stories of what happened, how it happened, and the aftermath of it," Vanscoy said.

Dunn, shot and killed on March 19, 2011, is listed at the end of the film as an officer who died in the line of duty.

"We decided it would be a nice tribute to Andy to bring this here," Vanscoy said.

Before showing the film, bagpipers will perform, the Cleveland police department will present the colors and the National Anthem will be played.

Sandusky police officers will also present a wreath in honor of Dunn. After the film, Dunn's father and retired Sandusky police Officer Matt Dunn will speak.

"We want the community to be able to come see this with us, to support us. To see a little bit of what it's like to be a cop," Vanscoy said.

"I think it will be good for the community as a whole," he said.

Tickets are on presale at the Sandusky State Theatre and the police station.

Half the proceeds will go to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. The rest will benefit the children's program at the theater and the Andrew Dunn Memorial Fund with the Fraternal Order of Police.

Trashy comment by a trashy person.

lugnut2511

Lol judging by a comment! Who's trashy now? Im just tired of the Dunn Donations, if you only knew what that family is getting already... She her kids and grandkids will be set. This is way outta hand, i know it doesnt replace a father, good cop or husband, but com on enoughs, enough

BadBoys

Ignorant.

Second Opinion

I agree with Lugnut. the police and fireman's union will push this for all they can. The average workers family in America doesn't receive pensions for their families, If I die my wife gets nothing from the government. I'M SADDENED THAT DUNN WAS MURDERED, but he knew the risks involved and so do all the other cops and firemen.

If an Ohio Ed lineman gets electrocuted for doing his job there isn't any movies made, if the 7-11 worker gets killed while doing their job, there isn't any movies made or fundraisers or benefits paid for life. IN other words, DON'T TRY TO MAKE THOSE NOT SUPPORTING this newest event some type of monster, the monsters are the Unions running with the story for their future benefits. If the cops don't like the risks then they should become a pharmacist or garage parking attendant, anything that is less dangerous. Oh, forgot, the garage attendant is dangerous too!

Look at the firemans memorial downtown, $45,000 for this which has the names of Firemen who died while working, MOST were run over by horses! Again, what about those during that period of time that were killed by horses while doing jobs, do you see any memorials for them? No memorials, no lifetime benefits for the family, ITS UNION BRAINWASHING at its best! "Oh the men and women who put their lives on the line" YES, some do, but so does most 7-11 workers. COPS have GUNS to defend themselves with about $50,000 of training and other equipment and a license to kill when justified, the 7-11 worker doesn't have ANY of these protections, instead their right to being protected with a gun is being removed by this squatter in the White House.!

But the article clearly states where the proceeds will go, and it's not the Dunn family.

Second Opinion

not the Dunn family?

""The rest will benefit the children's program at the theater AND the Andrew Dunn Memorial Fund with the Fraternal Order of Police."""

Licorice Schtick

So... you seem to be saying the money from a "memorial fund" goes to family? Are you sure? Can someone clarify?

abigbear

same feeling every time you turn around another Dunn benefit
what about other Officers maybe disabled Officers and their Family

VTX Rider

@lugnut - Did you read the article completely? Nowhere within it does it say any of the money will go the Dunn family.

"Half the proceeds will go to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. The rest will benefit the children's program at the theater and the Andrew Dunn Memorial Fund with the Fraternal Order of Police."

Lucygirl

If you read the article it states that the proceeds go to the NATIONAL LAW ENFORCRMENT OFFICERS MEMORIAL FUND. Not to the Dunn family directly. Don't go.... but don't bash either...

lugnut2511

My misunderstanding,,I apoligize but my feelings are true about the benefits. Way outta hand....

ReallyGood

You are an idiot plain and simple.

lugnut2511

I didnt go off calling people names, your lowering yourself way beyond anyone else on here

BadBoys

None lower than you.

lugnut2511

Awww, you give the family until it hurts! I dont care, this is freedom of speech still. Atleast for now! Im allowed to post on here like anyone else, you people put LOW in your lifes for name calling. Sit your fat a$$e$ at home and judge people by what they write. Ya real grown up!

ReallyGood

There's freedom of speech...and then there is ignorance. You my friend, classify as an idiot. You are on a whole different level.

lugnut2511

Lol bashing only makes you look ignorant. N dont call me your friend either. Don't know you and don't care to know anyone who is so one sided. Call me all the names you want, that doesnt change how I feel or post on here.

BadBoys

Why don't you leave your name at the bottom of your posts then? if you're going to disrespect people in your posts you should have the balls to leave your name at the bottom for everyone to see instead of cowering behind a "user name". If you arent okay with your name being attached to ignorant posts, maybe thats a sign you shoulndt be posting.

lugnut2511

Lol, I dont see your name...?

BadBoys

Im not the one posting ignorant comments on here either am I? Anyone that reads anything you type can draw the appropriate conclusion about your ignorance.

bigsexy

It should actually be......Yeah, YOU'RE a bright one to call anyone ignorant.

So, can I match wits with you?

lugnut2511

I doubt it

lugnut2511

I doubt it

Cityslicker

Hey lugnut! Where does it say any money is going to the family. Read the article before you open up like that.

lugnut2511

Hey cityslicker, didnt you read? Look two comments up from yours......

ReallyGood

Hey Cityslicker. Lugnut said "Didn't you read?"
Pretty ironic considering Lugnut themselves didn't read the article before posting their ignorant post.

lugnut2511

Awww, the register removed my first comment. Wonder why they would do that..I dont see where It was personal information, considering this is a news paper that will write the name of a 13 year old boy or his past and present issues with the law. LOL lopsided paper I guess

lugnut2511

Sooo another comment deleted by the register, for calling someone a name, such as **big boy** Hmm, but yet others can call names to me and nothing is done..The Register is showing its true colors on this one..
