Fallen Officer Memorial Highway

The 2011 Oregon State Legislature passed a law (HB 3039) to honor police officers killed in the line of duty. The law sets up a program to allow for a roadside memorial sign to be installed on a state highway to commemorate fallen officers.


Memorial signs may be installed for those police officers killed in the line of duty and who have been recognized by the Oregon Legislature through a concurrent resolution. HB 3039 defines a police officer as certain employees of the Department of Corrections, Department of State Police, county sheriffs or city police agencies.
To begin the process to have a memorial sign installed, please contact your state Senator or Representative to request he or she sponsor a concurrent resolution for the fallen officer.  To find out who your legislators are, visit the Oregon Legislature website and click on “Find Who Represents Me in Oregon.”
