LAPD Memorial Wall unveiled

The new LAPD Memorial Wall was unveiled and dedicated Wednesday night. The wall has the names of 202 officers inscribed on brass plates and weighs 11,000 pounds.

Due to rain, the dedication program was moved inside the new Police Administration Building. LAPD bag pipers and the honor guard then led guests outside for the formal dedication ceremony.

Guests included Chief Bratton, Mayor Villaraigosa, and several city councilmembers.

The Memorial was built with private funding from the Los Angeles Police Foundation. Architecture firm Gensler donated their services to design the sculpture.
