I found this memorial to be very moving especially during the candle light vigil during the opening ceremony. Later on we got to "stand for the fallen" which was quite the honor. This was the 1st time we attended the memorial week and it won't be the last.

Sad to see all the thousands of names of law enforcement persons who have been killed in the line of duty in USA. I calculated about 21,000 from the number of names on each page and how many pages in catalogs at each end of Judiciary Square. But nice to see how each name is deeply engraved along the wide...

Pretty place for a quick visit. Something easy to walk through on the way to somewhere else, so stroll through it if you can.

I remembered passing this Memorial several times when I was working at one of the branches of my employer and when visiting the National Building Museum. Why had I not noticed it? Perhaps because there was no adequate signage regarding this Memorial. I thought it was just a small, regular park and not a Memorial. Today it has two signs... More

Need not be a police officer to appreciate this. It is so well constructed and so powerful. Visit this every time I am in town.

We stumbled onto this monument while at Judiciary Square as we were not aware of the monument beforehand. We happened to look up a fallen officer from our hometown and found him easily. We were walking back to our hotel so it may not be fair to comment on this as we were walking at night but the place seemed... More

Located at the Judiciary Square metro stop, we almost walked right by this memorial. I am so glad we didn't, as this is so worth seeing. A very moving and touching memorial, paying homage to fallen Secret Service and other officers. All names are engraved on the two walls. There is a directory to guide visitors to the location of...

A touching memorial with far to many names on it. Sad to see so many giving the ultimate sacrifice for the tbl. Would be nice to have seen staff there, for maintenance / cleanliness sake.

Although a somber memorial, it's great to see names of Hawaii's Fallen Officers are inscribed on the wall.
