LPD Memorial Wall

The Lafayette Police Department is committed to remembering those who have proudly served the citizens of Lafayette as police officers. This page is a replication of the plaque that hangs in the lobby of the department and displays the names of those officers who retired from the department and have passed away. The Memorial Wall also shows those who have fallen in the line of duty and paid the ultimate sacrifice for our community.

Tribute Development
Each name on the wall contains a link to more information about that officer's career in the department. This page has taken more than 2 years to complete and is the result of exhaustive research of the department's archives by Volunteer in Policing (VIP), Hal Lafever. City of Lafayette Information Technology employee, Alan Schwab, has also spent many hours assisting Lieutenant Chris Weaver in the creation of this tribute.

National Police Week
This page was unveiled on May 15, 2010 in conjunction with National Peace Officers Memorial Day. In October 1962 President John F. Kennedy designated May 15th as the day to honor federal, state and local police officers who have been killed or disabled in the line of duty. The week that includes May 15th is designated as National Police Week.

Public Assistance to Complete Pages
As you browse through these tribute pages you will notice that some information is incomplete and that all officers are not depicted in photographs. Efforts remain underway in our research to fully complete all of these pages. If you have documents or photographs that can assist us in completing these pages, please send the information to the LPD webmaster.
