This Memorial was really good, especially as a law enforcement, it was really moving, anyone that is in service to the public should really see this memorial. Really easy to get to, just go to the judiciary metro exit, it is just to the left and will only take 15-30 minutes. Only two-three blocks from the Verizon Center, so if... More

My husband is a cop so we decided to visit. It was amazing. You can look up any officer killed in the line of duty in the book at the memorial. It gives you the name, date, location, department, and where their name is located on the memorial. I was able to look up a friend's father and easily find... More

This is a moving tribute to the men and women who laid down their lives as they served and protected our towns and cities all over the US. My prayer go out to their families who were left behind. Please don't miss this wonderful memorial!!

This memorial is very well laid out - a peaceful place to take a break from sightseeing. It is located right at the Metro stop, across from the Building Museum. While memorials to soldiers lost in battle tend to get much acclaim, law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day at home to keep us safe. This... More

As they do honor the people serving the country. Should be the same in other countries. Here it is about the law enforcement officers. The monument is opposite to the national building museum so it's worth to combine the both visits. There are all the names of fallen officers....not that much more to see.

I couldn't hold back my tears as I walked through and looked at the names, some from my own department. The wreaths are placed every year for the new names that will be added to the walls. Unlike the wars this country has fought, there will always be names added to these walls. I will go back for police week... More

We visited this during National Police Week, we just happened to be in Washington at that time, but Police officers from all over the world attend parades and ceremonies for the whole week and have been doing for many years, it's quite emotional to see so many uniforms, all congregating together to remember those who have been killed on duty....

Although the silence is occasionally broken by the Metro which runs beneath the memorial, it is so amazing to see the hundreds of names of the men and women in Law Enforcement who have died in the line of duty. This memorial is very special and worth the visit.

Full disclosure: I am a retired police officer, I also work for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. If you or anyone you know has ever served as a law enforcement professional and you are visiting Washington, D.C. consider stopping and paying a visit to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. This 3 acre park in Judiciary Square has... More
