This memorial is reminiscent of Vietnam War Memorial, with names of fallen officers engraved on marble walls. Likewise, it is a moving reminder of those who sacrificed their lives in service to others. It also has a reflecting pool, but not many places to sit and reflect. I missed the lion statues – I only read about them online.

The memorial is very simple and powerful. It is important to learn and pay respect to fallen officers who die while helping others. This is also for the families and friends left behind. Overwhelming for those of us who knew &/or worked with some of the fallen.

The National Law Enforcement Memorial is between E and F streets, with the Judiciary Square Metro stop within the block. Looked for the Fallen Officers from Hawaii.

This memorial is very close to the National Building Museum. Much like the Vietnam Wall, this memorial is covered with names of the fallen -- in this case, the names of law enforcement offers who have died in the line of duty. Unlike the Vietnam Wall, new names are added to the wall each May during Police Week when a... More

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
