These items of remembrance are repurposed granite pavers from the MN Law Enforcement Memorial in St. Paul. The Law Enforcement Memorial was constructed in 1995 with its walking surface made from fired granite. Not only is this granite beautiful but its process represents law enforcements resilience under fire and the uniqueness of both the stone and all those who wear a uniform.
The granite has borne the weight of thousands of officers, citizens, and survivors as they’ve gathered to honor officers that have given their lives in the line of duty. Each May 15th, honor guards from around the state gather for Law Enforcement Memorial Day and members of the Law Enforcement Memorial Association (LEMA) honor guard steadfastly guard the memorial - walking back and forth twenty-one steps across the granite memorial and standing at “Present Arms” in honor of fallen officers. The granite also bears the weight of the Memorial Bell that’s rung three times for each fallen officer as their name is read.
In 2019 the State of Minnesota made several repairs to the memorial. MN LEMA was able to repurpose some of the granite pavers to raise funds and spread awareness of LEMA’s mission of supporting surviving family members and agencies.
The coin holder size is 4.5" x 12" x 1" and the paperweight is 4" x 4" x 1"
Thank you for helping support LEMA and keeping the memory of
those that have given so much in service to country and community.
