About The Washington DC Metropolitan Police Memorial & Museum
The Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Memorial and Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. It is intended 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 is killed in the line of duty somewhere in the United States every 57 hours. In fact, a total of more than 22,000 U.S. law enforcement officers have made the ultimate sacrifice since 1791. (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, DC, who have been killed in the line of duty, an effort is well underway to build a more fitting memorial. The proposed site is in front of the historic headquarters of the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department at 300 Indiana Avenue, NW. A museum of police history and artifacts will also be established.
