Oregon Fallen Law Enforcement Officers Memorial
The Oregon Fallen Law Enforcement Officers Memorial sits on the grounds of the Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem. The monument features a curved granite wall, representing the survivors’ lives with the ones they lost; another wall with the names of the deceased, depicting the deaths themselves; and trees, representing the lives of those left behind after their loss.
The memorial honors more than 160 Oregon law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, some dating back to the 1880s. It recognizes those from all agencies, including city, county, and state police officers; county and state corrections officers; parole and probation officers; and other local, state, and federal law enforcement agents and officers.
