We visited the Law Enforcement Memorial on the Washington State Capitol Campus.
The inscription says, “Their duty was to serve. Our duty is to remember.”
The monument has the names of law enforcement officers who lost their lives the line of duty in Washington. Sadly, 275 law enforcement officers have been killed in the line of duty since 1854 when Washington was still a territory. The memorial is in a tranquil spot overlooking Capitol Lake and the Puget Sound with a view of the Olympic Mountains.
You can learn more by visiting the Behind the Badge site.
Today’s weather: Cold and rainy in the morning but warming up to the upper 40s.
