Bulletin Honors
Brighton, Colorado

After visiting the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial in Washington, D.C., members of the Brighton, Colorado, Police Department decided to build their own monument. For 3 years the department and the Fraternal Order of Police lodge raised funds for the memorial, dedicated in 2011. It consists of an open circle that represents the circle of life. The words “valor,” “respect,” and “honor” appear near the top of the semicircular wall. The monument contains pictures and patterns comprised of Native American symbology: an arrow represents protection, alternating triangles indicate day and night, deer tracks symbolize safety and shelter, and the whirlwind and water stand for rebirth and renewal. Lions convey strength, courage, and valor. A light projects a blue aura across the bricks inside the memorial. On the bricks are quotes, dedications, and words of encouragement and protection. A flagpole flies the American and National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial flags.
