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

I cannot rate a 3.5 so I gave it a four. I am law enforcement so I truly appreciate the memorial but it is somewhat on the average side. Too many good men and women’s names line these walls.

Very well planned tribute to fallen Law Enforcement officers. Shaded and pleasant. All the officers names were carved in stones around the memorial. An attendant was present to answer questions and help you find names. Great experience.

The loss of any law enforcement agent in the line of duty must call into question by national government why so many have been asked to make the ultimate sacrifice and was it worth them making it on behalf of the nation?

Having police officers in our family, this hit home. I must for everyone to pay respect to those that keep us safe.

This was a must stop for me as a retired police officer who sadly has several friend's names engraved on its walls. It's a tasteful tribute to the men and women who gave their lives to protect you. I hope you will take the time...More

Only on street parking is available near the memorial. Weekday / daytime is busy with D.C. Traffic. The metro train has a stop right under the memorial if you decide to park on the outskirts at a metro train parking lot. We... More
