FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - The Fond du Lac High School Performing Arts Center is hosting a national documentary called "Heroes Behind the Badge" Thursday night.

The film is about the bravery of law enforcement offices who have put their lives on the line, including those who died in the line of duty.

Among them is Fond du Lac police officer Craig Birkholz, who was shot and killed in March of 2011. As is his fellow officer Ryan Williams, who was wounded during that same shooting.

Tickets cost $15, with 50% of proceeds going to benefit the National Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial Fund.
