"Fallen Partner"

This monument is raised to honor all law enforcement officers of West Virginia. Every day, police courageously place themselves, as living shields between the public and danger.

We especially honor and commemorate those officers who have suffered injury or death while protecting us from harm, upholding our laws, and preserving the peace of our society.

This memorial funded through the West Virginia Chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police.

Dedicated May 19, 1990
Sculptor: W. D. Hopen of Sutton, West Virginia
