Take the time to reflect on over 20 thound five hundred names of law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for this country. The memorial has been well planned and thought out. It is a peaceful and moving memorial to wonderful people, do notmiss it.

Considering its in the middle of the city, its actually a pretty quiet and serene spot. If you are an officer, a family member of an officer, or just want to support the good officers of our country, this is a must stop.

This is right above a metro stop (Judiciary Sq. Red Line) so if you have a chance, I highly recommend seeing this. It's very touching. The first time I went it was lined with wreaths from officers killed on 9/11. This time they had been changed but it's still very touching to see all of the LEOs who have been... More

This is just stunning. As the spouse of a law enforcement officer, this hit close to home. This is similar to the Vietnam wall. It has panels with each name of fallen officers from around the country. They have a roll call book with each officers name, rank, department/county, and end of watch date. It also tells you exactly what... More

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial is a must see. I was there for the Annual Candle Light Vigil in May. Met Officers from all over the world. When the lights go out, the candles are lit and the songs are sung, it is very moving.

My wife and I have very close personal ties to LE and this memorial was perfect! The books to look up an officer are at every corner and plenty of paper and pencils are available to make a copy of a name on the wall. This is a must see for everyone! Be safe my brothers and sisters, watch your... More
