The Memorial features an entrance aligned towards Pikes Peak, a curved wall, and a fallen lion resting upon a base of granite. The embracing wall is low lighted by the thin blue line that separates Good from Evil. The wall rises to encircle the fallen lion. The lion faces the Veterans Memorial, in honor of our military partnership. A walk of honor with donated pavers extends 200 feet from the entrance to the foot of the base upon which the lion rests. Based upon the Lion of Lucerne, the Noble Lion embodies the protector, head bowed, protective paw extended, proving loyalty, courage, and bravery to the end. The entire structure encompasses 71,000 square feet. Names of the fallen, agency served, and “End of Watch” date, may be found on the granite base. Law enforcement shields are embedded in the wall. The fallen lion was sculpted by Colorado Springs resident Larry Terrafranca.
