This year’s Police Memorial Ceremony marks the 16th anniversary at the Dallas Police Memorial site. The Dallas Police Memorial wall is a tribute to honor the fallen officers of the Dallas Police Department who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. This landmark was commissioned by the Dallas Police Foundation in May of 2001.
The memorial sits adjacent to City Hall in downtown Dallas. The upper portion of the structure was designed to allow sunlight to stream through the steel plates on the underside, which bear the badge numbers of the fallen officers. This allows the sun to shine through and project them onto the paving below.
