End of Watch Memorial Wall

About

The Los Angeles Police Protective League’s traveling End of Watch Memorial Wall is a memorial that has the unique capacity to touch those from all over by bringing its message to them.

The End of Watch Memorial Wall depicts all six series LAPD badges in chronological order, with the current LAPD badge in the center and the Eagle & Badge Foundation insignia on the far right. Surrounding the six badges are the 207 names of the LAPD officers who have fallen in the line of duty.

Over the years, the EOW Memorial Wall will proudly be on display in our State Capitol, the lobby of City Hall and many other city halls. This new memorial is planned to be presented inside the new Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX for countless visitors from around the world to see and experience. In the years to come, the memorial could make its way through local schools and college campuses and perhaps many other civic and commercial venues.

It takes at least 3 people to safely manage the LAPD main badge assembly - it weighs over 100 pounds with more than 100 stainless steel welded studs to bolt the pieces together. Artist Timothy Lampros leads this delicate operation.

Raymond Reeves at Casters & Industrial Supply, Inc. of Sun Valley assembles one of the 38 ultra heavy duty casters. The Wall weighs in at over 13,000 pounds but thanks to Raymond's casters, it rolls effortlessly across a cement floor (almost effortlessly).

There are over 4,000 nuts & bolts used in the Wall. Stainless steel all the way up to the super duty Grade 8. Pictured here are the 230 bolts that affix the EOW frames to the Wall. Think of 20x's this many used in the project.

Peters, Robert Flores III, the manager - these guys work long hard days & nights to get the massive powder coating job done and done perfectly. More pictures of their fantastic work to follow soon.

Over 50 sheets of 5x10 stainless and 3/16th steel are used in the Memorial Wall fabrication and the Badges. Industrial Metal Supply in Sun Valley has been very helpful in taking care of all the steel needs for this project.
