On Dec. 4, 2012, the Raleigh City Council approved a request from the Raleigh Police Memorial Foundation to design and construct a police memorial in front of the Raleigh Municipal Building at 222 West Hargett Street to honor and remember fallen Raleigh police officers.

The Raleigh Police Memorial Foundation is dedicated to honoring the lives and memories of our fallen heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of their duty while serving the City of Raleigh. If you would like to contribute, please click here to donate.
The Foundation was founded in 2009 by a group of active and retired Raleigh police officers who are dedicated to honoring and remembering the Raleigh police officers who made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting and serving others.
The founders of the Raleigh Police Memorial Foundation participate each May during National Police Week in the Law Enforcement United, Road To Hope Bike Ride, which is an annual 250 mile bicycle ride to Washington, DC. The 2013 ride finished at the Jefferson Memorial on the banks of the Potomac River. The ride honors fallen officers and raises funds for the families of fallen officers through Concerns of Police Survivors. The dream for the Foundation began in 2009 when the Raleigh officers who rode in this event returned with a vision to build a memorial that would honor the fallen Raleigh police officers and ensure that those officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice would never be forgotten.
The Foundation is a charitable, non-profit, private organization and is separate from the Raleigh Police Department. We recognize and appreciate those members of our community who support us and provide us with the means to carry on our mission. Thank you for taking time to visit our website.
