This Police Memorial located in the City Hall Plaza was a gift to the city from John R. Burton and dedicated in 1984. The memorial consists of a marker listing names of the 33 Norfolk police officers killed in the line of duty since 1904. A large bell that hung in Norfolk’s first courthouse until 1976, hangs in the apex of a frame designed by Victor Pickett.
