I won't say a lot about this. It's a memorial to those fallen. A must for any law enforcement officer. It is soon to be redeveloped along with its visitors centre so check the website when visiting.

I visit every year when I travel to DC. I will be glad when the museum gets open. I was fortunate a few years ago to be there for the memorial ceremonies. Not a dry eye around even from the hardest chiseled officer, me included. This an awesome way to remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice to keep evil... More

A beautiful location with memorial that honors those who lived as heroes helping others. Best time to visit is summer when the trees are full. May is often very busy due to Police Week when new names are added.

A beautiful place to honor our heroes who put their lives on the line everyday to serve the public. No one ever loves a law enforcement officer as much as the person who needs one. Here is a great place to give thanks and show respect to the people who maintain order on a day to day, individual to individual... More

As someone who has multiple officers in my family I found this memorial to be moving. It was so nice to see the men and women who have served and protected, and made the ultimate sacrifice, be respected and remembered so elegantly. The memorial itself is not over the top, which I find to be nice. A small park like... More

If you didn't know that you were going to the area for the Law Enforcement Memorial, you would have no idea that this is there - which is kind of disappointing. However, being someone who was going to remember coworkers whose names are listed on the wall, we found it to be a moving memorial. Likening it to the Vietnam... More

It looked like a very nicely put together memorial, but everything was covered in snow. Maybe I'll go back in a different season...

I am honored to have been able to visit the memorial and I am so glad that there is such a wonderful place to honor our fallen heroes! At first I was confused and overwhelmed as where to find the names we were looking for, but after I located the book, it was easy. They have paper and pencils available... More

Anyone who has ever been in law enforcement or part of a law enforcement family should visit the memorial wall. To trace the name of a loved one or fellow officer enables one to connect, reflect and remember. A wonderful gift shop is located 3-4 blocks away. The staff is so helpful....complete with Kleenex on hand! As much as it... More

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial is a small memorial near DC Superior Courts and is very easy access by the Metro red line. It is a place to see and to pay respect to those who sacrificed their life for the peaceful environment to all of us. It is a simple design with directory of names to aid visitor.... More
