The American Police Hall of Fame & Museum has been honoring law enforcement officers and their contributions since 1960. In 2003, upon the opening of our new location, a 2000 sq ft. Memorial was created to honor and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

Whose Names are on our Memorial Wall?
The museum and memorial were founded in 1960, so we began recording and honoring officers who died in the line of duty from that date forward.
Any officer, from 1960 forward, that we are made aware of – and can confirm as a line of duty death – is eligible to be engraved in our Memorial Rotunda
Because we recognize that many line of duty deaths occurred before 1960, we are about to introduce an exciting new digital project that will recognize and honor the lives and legacies of ALL American officers killed in the line of duty, whether before or after 1960. If you are interested in adding a name to that project, please send a note to Tarae@aphf.org to be placed on the mailing list for notification when the project is up and running. There is nothing else like it in the country!
In the meantime, if you know of a line of duty death that occurred after 1960 and that officer’s name is not on our wall, click here to submit the officer’s information.
