National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial information
The memorial on Judiciary Sq commemorates US police officers killed on duty since 1794. In the style of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, names of the dead are carved on two marble walls curving around a plaza; new names are added during a moving candlelight vigil each year in May. Peeking over the walls, bronze lion statues protect their sleeping cubs (presumably as law enforcement officers protect us).
The group has broken ground on the National Law Enforcement Museum , which will open across from the memorial sometime in 2016 or after.
