I can't wait until they get the museum opened. It is supposed to be just across from this memorial. Not sure if this is enough to make a separate trip to but it is a nice place to start touring this area.

It's located in a park setting, with undulating granite walls forming two paths through the park. The names of fallen officers are written on the walls, along with... More

Emotionally, this is a hard place to visit. It's a harsh reminder of what Law Enforcement faces every day. That said, it is a beautiful monument to the lost brothers and sisters. The lion statues are incredible, and I love the quotes they picked for the walls. It's a little off the beaten path, but worth the walk.

An excellent tribute to fallen law enforcement officers. Very moving place to visit. Moving tributes left at the wall by friends and family. NEVER FORGOTTEN!

Even if you don't have a personal reason to visit...do it anyways. It's a beautiful tribute and literally right at the Judiciary Square metro stop...no extra walking needed

This was one of our favorite sites. Wis it were more publicized. There is a website but it isn't given on TripAdvisor. There are too many names, one officer dying in the line of duty is too many. Eat to find officer names, beautiful reflecting pool. Sobering experience.
