Wikipedia Description: National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, in Washington, D.C. at Judiciary Square, honors fallen law enforcement officers.
The memorial was established by an Act of Congress in 1984, and dedicated on October 15, 1991. Designed by architect Davis Buckley, the memorial features a reflecting pool which is surrounded by walkways on a 3 acre park. Along the walkways are walls that are inscribed with names of all American law enforcement officers — federal, state, and local — who have died in the line of duty. One entrance of the Judiciary Square metro station is on the memorial site. A visitor center is nearby at 605 E Street Northwest.
Public Law 104-329 (October 20, 1996) created a memorial maintenance fund, managed by the United States Secretary of the Interior and funded by the sale of commemorative coins and donations.
In 2000, Congress approved legislation authorizing the construction of a National Law Enforcement Museum (PL 106-492) to honor the over 17,500 officers who have given their lives in the line of duty. the cost of this memorial is somewhere between $546,000 and $550,000. The bill, signed into law by President Bill Clinton on November 9, 2000, authorized the planning for the museum and the adjacent research library. The museum will be built immediately across from the memorial.
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
