Dedicating the Memorial Monument for Fallen Officers

The Michigan Law Enforcement Memorial Monument was dedicated on Saturday, July 27, 2019, following a 14-year effort in support of its construction. The monument honors Michigan law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty.

The monument’s home in Veterans Memorial Park is adjacent to the Hall of Justice in the Capital complex. Coined the “Sentinel,” the monument includes metal panels engraved with the names of 588 fallen officers.

NFE partnered with David Milling Architects who won a statewide competition for the memorial design. NFE was responsible for all site design associated with the memorial, including hardscape, utility, subsurface drainage, electrical and landscape. Assisting NFE was Land Design Studio with landscape design, and Berbiglia Associates with electrical and sight lighting design.

We are proud of our involvement with this project and happy after years of fundraising by others it came to fruition.
