Henrico County dedicated this memorial statue plaza in May of 1999 to honor their police officers killed in the line of duty. The main statue, which is an officer, is a cross cultural composite of several officers from the Division of Police. The memorial also has a little girl and a dog as part of the vignette. Then, a stone with each officer's name is placed at intervals around the plaza's outer perimeter.
A memorial service with wreath-laying ceremony is held here each year during Police Memorial Week. Additionally, another wreath is placed at the memorial on the anniversary date of each officer's death to honor his/her sacrifice.
