The Missouri Law Enforcement Memorial is dedicated to the law enforcement officers who have made the supreme sacrifice in the service of the citizens of Missouri.

The Missouri Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation was established in 1985 as a non-profit fundraising organization to finance the construction of a memorial to Missouri's fallen law enforcement officers. The memorial was dedicated on June 17, 1994, just three years after the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial was dedicated in Washington, D.C.
