Police Memorial

Police MemorialThe Police Memorial outside of the Municipal Center on Indiana Ave. appears to date to the time of the building. The plan for a much larger complex of buildings was approved in 1934, but construction on a single building, called the Municipal Center, did not begin until 1939.

While incorporated into and eclipsed by the larger Washington Area Law Enforcement Memorial, the older Police Memorial has some very nice, yet subtle, details.

  1. Dennis Gannon Says:

    Does anyone know for sure who it was who designed\executed the Police Memorial on Indiana Avenue in downtown DC/

    My candidate would be John Joseph Earley, who did a similar kind of work on objects like the Peace Cross in Blagdensburg, parts of structures in Meridian Hill Park, a cluster of houses off Colesville Road in Silver Spring, and Sacred Heart Catholic Church on 16th Street NW.
