Fallen Officer Names Buried at Museum Site

The name rubbings were part of a project from National Police Week in 2014. Visitors to the Memorial were asked to make extra rubbings of their loved one’s names so they could be placed into a capsule and embedded into the Museum underneath the area which will contain the Museum’s Hall of Remembrance. Read the blog.

Watch the construction of the National Law Enforcement Museum.
