Fallen Officer Memorial
We encourage you to stop and take a moment to look at the statue, walk around the base and take note of the artist’s work, handcrafting and the tribute to our officers, and also the memorial walls that show honor and love to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The amazing story behind the memorial
The DPS Officer Monument Statue and Memorial walls would never have been a reality today except for the unrelenting dedication of the committee members, AZTroopers and monetary supporters. The association funded “seed” money in the amount of $3,000 to begin work on this tribute to officers past and present. The amount needed for the statue and base for the statute was $100,000. AZTroopers gave the committee the first $3,000 to get started.
