Title

Oregon Law Enforcement Memorial Wall

Description

Dedicated to law enforcement officers in Oregon, the granite wall stood outside the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) Building on Western Oregon University's campus. Each May, in recognition of National Police Month, the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training hosts the ceremony to honor officers who have given their lives while serving the citizens and visitors of Oregon. The text on the wall reads "With the rededication of the living to the principles which guided these dead we give meaning to their sacrifice." Originally in front of the former Oregon Police Academy building (now the Mark "Ted" Winters Math and Nursing Building), the wall was moved to the new DPSST facility in Salem in 2006.

The image has three trees with yellow leaves in front of the black granite wall. On the wall is lists of names and the text "In the Service of Mankind." Behind the wall is the Mark "Ted" Winters Math and Nursing Building.
