The core MISSION of the Bryant Peney Memorial Scholarship's  is to provide CHILDREN of the FORT LAUDERDALE POLICE DEPARTMENT Financial ASSISTANCE  for College

Officer Bryant Peney was shot on the night of January 5, 1996, during a foot chase with a subject. Officer Peney had tried to stop the subject while he was hiding in a bush along Federal Highway. While the suspect was running, he turned and fired at Officer Peney. The bullet entered his arm, nicked his vest, and entered his chest. Officer Peney died in surgery at 0354 hours on January 6, 1996. A manhunt involving approximately 200 police officers produced the suspect about nine hours later. The suspect was convicted of four counts, including first-degree murder, on May 26, 1999. On June 17, 1999,  a jury recommended the suspect be sentenced to life without the possibility of parole. On August 27, 1999, the judge presiding over the case reversed the jury's decision and sentenced the suspect to death. In 2005 the judge’s decision was overturned by the Florida Supreme Court and the suspect received life in prison. Officer Peney is survived by his parents and twin brother, who is also a Ft. Lauderdale Police Captain.
