Expansion Project

The Kansas Law Enforcement Memorial honors law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty, to forever remind us of their service. The need to expand the memorial and create more space to honor Kansas’ future, fallen officers is a sobering reminder of what every law enforcement officer risks each day they report for duty.

The expansion is designed to symbolize the long-lasting ripple effect each officer has on their community, with a new outer ring embracing the original monument. Constructed of the same granite used in the 2004 reconstruction, the outer ring will provide space for 384 plates, should additional tributes become necessary

Standing sentinel at each entry, bollards emitting a soft blue light will remind visitors of the service Kansas law enforcement officers provide. The same blue light, integrated into the outer ring, echoes the promise that we will not forget the fallen officers’ sacrifice.
