NLEOM List of U. S. Park Police Officers

This list was made to assist people visiting the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, who have an interest in locating the names of fallen United States Park Police officers. The document (See Link Below) lists the names, end of watch dates (EOW), and NLEOM panel locations, for the 13 United States Park Police Officers honored at the Memorial, three different ways:

  • Alphabetical order
  • By end of watch date (EOW)
  • By the location of their name on the wall.
    • Officers’ names are ordered, as if you were walking the Memorial clockwise, starting at the north end of the east wall.
