DMPD Fallen Officer Memorial

$2,550 of $240,000 goal

Raised by 29 people in 19 days
The Des Moines Police Department suffered devastating losses in 2016 when two police officers died in a fiery crash caused by a drunk driver. Months later, a police sergeant was ambushed by gunfire while patrolling the city.  Following both tragedies, the community rallied to support the police family with meals, kind words and flowers at makeshift memorials.      
Two visionary landscape professionals have designed a permanent and living memorial to honor all 24 Des Moines police officers who paid the ultimate price while serving this great city.  Bold and meaningful art will be surrounded by a tranquil garden located in front of the police station where police family and their community will remember together.  Signage will invite visitors inside to learn about the individual fallen officers lost.          
The ambitious $240,000 project depends on community support, with roughly 20% raised and another 20% pending.  Donations to the “DMPD Fallen Officer Memorial” may also be delivered or mailed to:
