Connecticut Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation


In 1985, members of the Connecticut Police Chiefs Association formed a statewide committee to ensure that a permanent memorial would be erected to honor all officers – local, state, and federal – who had lost their lives while serving the citizens of the State of Connecticut.

In 1989, after four years of fundraising efforts, the first pieces of granite began to arrive at the Connecticut Police Academy in Meriden. After several months of construction, the Memorial was dedicated in October 1989.

The Connecticut Law Enforcement Memorial is a fitting tribute and a constant reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that law enforcement officers make on behalf of everyone.
