Fallen Officers

MEMORIAL

After completing the facility, Whiting-Turner was hand-selected to construct the Fallen Officers Memorial on the plaza area. The memorial honors the police officers who have lost their lives serving the City of Alexandria. The Police Foundation worked with Whiting-Turner to construct the memorial, which consists of five free-standing glass panels that have the names of the fallen officers etched into the panel. The memorial also includes benches with commemorative plaques dating back to the 1800s, as well as a timeline that outlines the history of the police department.
