Description

Description
Water cascades down the center of a pair of concrete "staircases" set into the side of a small hill and then flows into a round polished granite fountain basin. The inscription on the stone above the fountain reads: "Police Memorial." The inscription on the fountain basin reads: "In honor of those who gave their lives protecting our community - May 13, 1991." The names of slain police officers from the Buffalo area are also engraved on the fountain basin.
