The Oregon Fallen Law Enforcement Officers’ Memorial Ceremony is a significant event that the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) is proud to host each year in partnership with the Oregon Law Enforcement Memorial Fund, Oregon Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation, and Oregon’s various statewide law enforcement associations.
The State’s memorial honors more than 180 fallen Oregon law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty since the 1860s. This includes officers from city, county, state, tribal and federal law enforcement agencies who have served as law enforcement officers, corrections officers, and parole and probation officers.
The names of three fallen Oregon law enforcement officers will be added to the wall this year. A shortened version of the traditional ceremony will take place to honor and remember those who have fallen, and the families they left behind. The ceremony will once again be closed to the public in order to adhere to safety restrictions in place due to the current pandemic; only a small number of invited guests will attend. The ceremony will take place at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022.
