Take a 360 degree tour of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial!

Virtual Tour 2016
Dedicated on October 15, 1991, the Memorial honors federal, state, and local law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the safety and protection of our nation and its people. There are more than 20,000 names carved on the Memorial's marble walls, dating back to 1791. New names of fallen officers are added to the monument each spring, and formally dedicated during the annual Candlelight Vigil. The Memorial is centered in the 400 block of E Street NW, in Washington, DC's historic Judiciary Square neighborhood, and is visited by nearly a quarter million people annually.

HOW TO LOCATE A NAME

Each name is associated with a panel and line number. Panels on the west (W) and east (E) walls are numbered from 1 to 64 (the panel number is engraved at the bottom of each panel). Line 1 is at the top of each panel; count down to locate the line you are looking for. For example, Panel 20-W, Line 16 refers to the 16th line on the 20th panel of the west wall.

Using Officer William R. Mast, Jr. as an example, this graphic shows how to locate his name engraved on Panel 53 East.
