Overview
More
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial is centered in the 400 block of E Street, NW, and is the nation's monument to law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. Dedicated on October 15, 1991, the Memorial honors federal, state and local law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the safety and protection of our nation and its people. The Memorial features two curving, 304-foot-long blue-gray marble walls. Carved on these walls are the names of more than 2,000 officers who have been killed in the line of duty throughout U.S. history, dating back to the first known death in 1791. Unlike many other memorials in Washington, DC, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial is ever-changing: new names of fallen officers are added to the monument each spring, in conjunction with National Police Week in May.

You will be tearful knowing so many LE officers sons and daughters were orphaned when you feel the sheer numbers of those who gave their final measure of devotion. Back the Blue

This was very meaningful to me to see the law enforcement officers memorial in person as I lost a friend in the line of duty and I finally got to see his name on the memorial in person. I highly recommend visiting this!

Beautiful Memorial with lots of symbolism. Sad that we have so many names (21,000 plus) from all states on this simple wall. So important to have a place to go to for those who still serve and protect, for those who have family that serve...More

Went for Police week, it was very impressive. Easy to find a name if your looking for someone . Lots of staff to help out . It’s not huge so very easy to see it all.

What a wonderful, peaceful tribute to those men and women who put on the uniform every single day and never know whether they will return home or not. This is definitely worth the short walk from the Mall to honor those who keep us safe.

To date there are over 21,000 names on this memorial wall. Although this is the reason for my trip, the honor of these officers killed in the line of duty is humbling. New museum will be opening in Fall (October) 2018. Can’t wait

This is a special memorial and so too is the week long tribute to our fallen Officers Nationally. This past week was a bittersweet reminder of the sacrifices being made and that many still honor and respect these, our Nations finest.
