The Department of State unveiled a new memorial on May 13, 2013 that honors civilian police and corrections advisors, pilots, and support staff killed while supporting the Department’s criminal justice assistance programs abroad.
Ambassador William R. Brownfield, Assistant Secretary of the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, paid tribute to the 86 personnel listed on the memorial wall and presented flags to families of the fallen in a ceremony at the Department of State. The honorees include U.S. citizens as well as foreign nationals, all of whom were serving as federal employees or government contractors at the time of their deaths. Many of those honored were former police officers who played a critical role in developing rule of law and democracy in countries of vital interest to the United States, including Afghanistan, Iraq, Kosovo, Bosnia, Colombia, and Peru.
