Utah Law Enforcement Memorial

This memorial to Utah’s law enforcement replaced a smaller one previously displayed inside the Capitol prior to the preservation project from 2004-2008. It was sculpted by Utah artist Lena Toritch and depicts three individual scenes in bronze. On the stone wall behind the sculptures are the names of 115 officers that have died while protecting Utah citizens. The photo above is the centerpiece of the monument and is laid in the ground to honor those who served our great state. The words, "all give some, some give all" remind visitors of the sacrifice made my Utahns all over the state.
