LSP Memorial


On behalf of the Louisiana State Police, welcome to this Memorial page. This page, and our Memorial statue which stands at our Headquarters, is a tribute to the 26 Troopers who gave their lives while protecting the people of Louisiana since the Department's inception in 1922. The sacrifice these brave Troopers made was not theirs alone - their families receive more than our thanks, more than our gratitude. They deserve our unwavering commitment to continue the fight of those we have lost - a commitment to continue working for a safer Louisiana. This page, and our Memorial, is our way of ensuring that these brave Troopers retain their rightful place in our hearts and memories.

Each year we conduct a memorial service at the State Police Headquarters to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. This ceremony is conducted in conjunction with the National Police Memorial ceremony in Washington, D.C. in the month of May. Interested persons may contact any Public Information Officer for additional details.


 

"The Monument"

I never dreamed it would be me
My name for all eternity
Recorded here at this hallowed place
Alas, my name, no more my face

"In the line of duty" I hear them say
My family now the price to pay
My folded flag stained with their tears
We only had those few short years

The badge no longer on my chest
I sleep now in eternal rest
My sword I pass to those behind
And pray they keep this thought in mind

I never dreamed it would be me
And with heavy heart and bended knee
I ask for all here from the past
Dear God, let my name be the last

- Sgt. George Hahn, L.A.P.D.


"The tumult and the shouting dies,
the Captains and Kings depart:
Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,
a humble and contrite heart.
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Les we forget - - lest we forget!"

- Rudyard Kipling
