Close up of Union County Law Enforcement Memorial

Life-size bronze cast statue of a law enforcement officer down on one knee. His left elbow rests on his left knee and his face is held by the left hand, which covers his eyes. A folded flag is held under the right arm. The word "Union" is on the collar of his shirt.

The base of the statue is a stone hexagon. Five of the sides have the names and emblems of Union County law enforcement divisions: Union County Sheriff's Office, Ohio State Highway Patrol Post 80, Plain City Police Department, Richwood Police Department, and Marysville Police Division. The sixth side, which is at the front of the memorial, has a poem by Sgt. George Hahn, L.A.P.D. (Retired) titled "The Monument" on it, which is a tribute to law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty.

The memorial sits in front of the Union County Courthouse and Union County Sheriff's Office in Marysville.
