All the men and women who put their lives on the line daily and then something tragic happens in the line of duty. Nice that they have a memorial for these officers - greatly appreciated.

A lovely park dedicated to downed officers located just above the Judicial Center Metro stop. Well worth taking the Metro or walking a little out of your way to visit. The pond, landscaping and beautiful monument outline engraved with names was very tasteful and honorable.

If you are not a police friendly person, come from a police family, are a police officer, or have lost a police officer in the line of duty, you will not like nor appreciate the significance of this memorial. My strong advice would be to save your time and money if you do not fit into any of the above... More

What a very moving tribute. So sad. Yet an absolute essential part of any patriotic visit to our nations Capitol. Do your duty and pay tribute to those brave souls who stand in harms way to protect you from the wolf.

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.
