Michigan Fallen Heroes Memorial


The Michigan Fallen Heroes Memorial, initiated by the Oakland County, Michigan, Sheriff’s Office, is the state’s only monument that honors both police officers and firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty. The first phase of the project, the bronze statue, was unveiled in 2002, and the second phase, the granite wall that displays the names of the fallen heroes, followed in November 2005. The oldest names on the wall date back to 1864, and new names are added and unveiled at an annual ceremony held every September 11th. Currently, 787 names from all police and fire departments across Michigan reside on the wall. The memorial honors the lives, service, and memories of all law enforcement officers and firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty. The site itself serves as a place where loved ones and the general public may visit, remember, and pay respect to these honorable men and women.
