How to Report a Line of Duty Death for a Memorial Ceremony
Names are inscribed on each Memorial once a year, in the spring just before the month of May. The deadline to submit an officer for inclusion on the Texas Peace Officers’ Memorial is February 1, and December 31 for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, to be considered engraving on the Memorials the following year.
However, we ask that you submit your forms as soon as possible. Due to the number of COVID-19 related deaths, we need to be able to process your reported information in a timely manner.
The Texas Peace Officers' Memorial Nomination Procedure
The Texas Commission on Law Enforcement is responsible for reviewing names submitted by the Texas Peace Officers’ Memorial Committee for inclusion on the monument and determining their eligibility in accordance with the criteria set forth in Commission rule 229.1 and approving names for inclusion at two of its quarterly meetings.
