The Lakeland Police Fallen Heroes Memorial is located at the entrance of the police station, 219 North Massachusetts Avenue. Constructed in 2017 to pay tribute to those who selflessly made the ultimate sacrifice so that the people of Lakeland can live, work, play, and raise their families in safety and peace, the Memorial also serves as a place of reflection and appreciation for those members who currently serve our community. The Memorial features glass plaques honoring the seven fallen Lakeland police officers, a large bronze statue of an Honor Guard officer watching over the site, and a beautiful glass etched police badge. Within the foundation are commemorative personalized brick pavers of past and present members of the Lakeland Police Department and community supporters whose donations helped fund the project.
