A well done monument to those who gave their lives protecting others. Next door the the National Building Museum.
No big tour bus stop, no gift shop. Just the reverent memorial to police officers who had died in the line of duty. The names are guarded by a family of lions, very beautiful. Stop by, say a prayer or good thought for the families left behind. These heroes deserve it.
One memorial that was completely open during the Government Shut down, thank goodness! Able to take a moment to make tracings of officers from Hawaii who recently gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to their community. Thank you.
A very Impressive Memorial dedicated to our Law Enforcement Officers. Over two thousand names of officers killed in the line of duty are on the wall, dating back to the 1800's. I had the opportunity to attend the Candlelight Vigil in May, during which the names of the fallen officers from the year before are read. A very solemn ceremony.... More

For anyone working law enforcement around the country or around the world even, this is a must see. The amount of names is incredibly humbling, and anyone, law enforcement or not, can really appreciate this memorial. When I went there was a guide that showed how much of the memorial is actually names from September 11th, and also had lead... More
We just returned from a trip to Washington D.C. While there we visited the Law Enforcement Memorial. My father’s name is on the memorial wall and we try to go there when we can. It is quite an honor to those who gave their life in the line of duty. It is not close to the usual sites but not... More
My visit to the National Law Enforcement Memorial made me remember just how fragile life is for Law Enforcement (and Fire) personnel. It doesn't matter what city, county, parish, or state they came from, they all died long before they should have. It's sad and I feel for their families.
