Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.

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 space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.

For some reason, several of my photos have been published in physical books this year which is pretty cool. Ones that I know about:
"Tarzan, Jungle King of Popular Culture" (David Lemmo),
"The Great Crusade: A Guide to World War I American Expeditionary Forces Battlefields and Sites" (Stephen T. Powers and Kevin Dennehy),
"The American Spirit" (David McCullough),
"Civil War Battlefields: Walking the Trails of History" (David T. Gilbert),
"The Year I Was Peter the Great: 1956 — Khrushchev, Stalin's Ghost, and a Young American in Russia" (Marvin Kalb), and
"The Judge: 26 Machiavellian Lessons" (Ron Collins and David Skover).
Number of photos taken this year: just below 560,000.
