About The Washington DC Metropolitan Police Memorial & Museum

The Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Memorial and Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our goal to honor the fallen heroes of the Metropolitan Police Department. We also are establishing a Metropolitan Police Museum to preserve their legacy and the rich and unique history of policing in the nation’s Capital.

Sadly, an average of one law enforcement officer dies in the line of duty somewhere in the United States every 57 hours. Additionally, this is more than *21,000 U.S. law enforcement officers. Overall, they have made the ultimate sacrifice since 1791. (*As of 12/2018 see source)

A memorial fountain built in 1942 by the citizens and business community of Washington, D.C. exists currently. However, it is dilapidated.  In order to appropriately honor the sacrifices of the men and women of the Metropolitan Police Department of Washington, D.C., who have been killed in the line of duty, an effort is well underway to build a more fitting memorial.  Additionally, a proposed site is in front of the historic headquarters of the Washington, D.C.Metropolitan Police Department. You can also see the memorial on Indiana Avenue. A museum of police history and artifacts will also be established.
