Add this Memorial to your list when in DC. You can also visit the NLEOM across the street. The museum is very interesting and interactive and not too big for families.

This is a fitting tribute to the men and women in law enforcement who have lost their lives. There is a guide book on site to help locate the names on the wall. This is helpful if you know someone who's been honored on the...More

This memorial is a great reminder of all the Law Enforcement Officers who are willing and ready to risk their lives for complete strangers. Simple memorial - but worth the visit.

Extremely meaningful, listing the name and department of every law enforcement officer (local, regional, state, and Federal) who ever died in the line of duty in the history of the country. If you are looking for a specific name, you must consult one of the...More

Simple and lovely way to recognize our fallen law enforcement personnel. Sad to have so many new names as additions.

Definately not the flashiest but heavy in meaning. Too many names added each year. Too many friends names etched on the walls. Definately needs to be a stop for everyone
