Honoring Officers who have fallen

City goverment offers a wide range of online services

The Orange County Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremonies were first held in 1987 at the Plaza of the Flags in Santa Ana. Now, the ceremony is held in Tustin and honors officers who have fallen in the line of duty in Orange County.

Honoring Officers

The memorial includes beautiful stone walls and bronze plaques with the fallen officers’ names and staggering bronze statues that are 9 feet tall. The first Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremony began at this location on May 29, 2013 and they have been held on the last Thursday of May every year since.

The two bronze figures represent a male and female officer, and at the feet of these officers’ lies an American flag folded into a triangle on granite base featuring an inscription.

“THIS FOLDED FLAG REMINDS US OF THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE TO PROTECT THE RIGHTS, PRIVILEGES AND FREEDOMS WE ENJOY TODAY”

All who wish to attend in support of Orange County’s fallen heroes are welcome.

The formal ceremonies include patrol motors, a procession of Peace Officers’ Memorial Honor Guard, a rider-less horse to symbolize the death of a warrior, a multi-agency presentation of colors, the singing of the National Anthem, an Enrollment Ceremony, and law enforcement traditions such as the 21-gun salute, the playing of Taps, and a missing man formation flyover.

The ceremony is concluded with a deeply moving Candlelit Vigil for friends and family to celebrate and pay respects to their fallen heroes.
