OCTOBER 2016
25th Anniversary

Take a 360 degree tour of the Memorial

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial celebrated their 25th Anniversary this month. The special occasion was commemorated with wreath-layings, races and moments of silence throughout the month.

It was 25 years ago when President George H. W. Bush spoke eloquently about the Memorial and the people it honors. "They valued the law," he said. "They valued peace—the peace of a civilized community that protects children at play, families at home, and storekeepers at work. They valued human life—so much that they were prepared to give their lives to protect it."

Watch the video commemorating the dedication.
