Sadly, the number of fallen officers has exceeded the available space on our existing memorial. The new design for the wall will provide the space needed to honor all our fallen officers. We also seek to update the memorial with a more modern look, while still retaining artifacts from the existing display.
Our plan is to expand the current display from a static exhibit to an interactive memorial encapsulating each officer’s life and service. A video panel and interactive video kiosk will tell the stories of each fallen officer. Additionally, a smart phone app will provide the public with off-site access to these officers’ stories.
The cost of transforming the memorial involves not only the materials and construction of the wall, but also the production of videos, monitors for displaying the videos, and development costs for the smartphone app. We need your help to make this happen.
