Florida Sheriff’s Association
Fallen Officer Memorial
Life-size bronze sculpture of Sheriff, Sheriff Deputies and a fallen officer’s family, publically installed and integrated into the architectural design of the Memorial in in Tallahassee, FL. Dedicated 2002.
The Florida Sheriff’s Association wished to create a memorial that offered family members, coworkers, and friends their own “place to heal.” By incorporating figures representing all these people, I hoped to immediately make the sculpture accessible to everyone visiting the memorial. The deputies at attention show the resolve and willingness to serve in the future, the partner holding the fallen officer’s hat was the overwhelming sense of loss one can feel for a friend, The Sheriff’s slight gesture towards the widow and daughter’s shoulders conveyed the support for families that the Association offers.
