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

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.
