  2. This was my first visit to the memorial since my brother was killed in the line of duty in 2007. It is a great comfort to know that no matter what the future holds, he will always be remembered and honored in a beautiful and powerful way! Thank You for all that you do for our fallen officers and their families!

  3. I have been to Police Week numerous times and every time I step foot on the memorial grounds an overwhelming feeling comes over me. I feel that every police officer and their family need to experience the candle light vigil and visit our memorial to get a sense of who we are and what we are about. God bless our fallen brothers and sisters and their families.
