14 Peace Officers Memorial in Saint Paul, Minnesota

Peace Officers Memorial was erected at the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport in 1977 and later moved to the Minnesota State Capitol grounds. It is tribute to the nearly 300 police officers killed in action since 1881. This is the locale for National Law Enforcement Day every May 15, a 24-hour ceremony. The inscription on the granite block is a Bible quote from Matthew 5:9: “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” The blue stripe represents the “thin blue line” navigated by law enforcement on a daily basis.
