Bulletin Honors
Contra Costa County, California

The Contra Costa County Peace Officers Monument is located in Martinez, California. Rather than honoring fallen officers, it recognizes all peace officers past, present, and future who dedicate their professional lives to serving citizens and making communities safe. It was unveiled during National Police Week in May 2002.

The circle of badges and shields, placed in the order in which each agency was established, at the statue base signify both the perpetual unity and equality of each police agency in Contra Costa County. The bronze statue features a peace officer standing next to a little boy. It represents service, respect, and community, which form the foundation of a successful partnership between law enforcement and those served.
