  • PPD Memorial

    Comcast Center Lobby, 1701 JFK Blvd., 19103


    To commemorate and honor fallen police officers, the Philadelphia Police Department (PPD) and Comcast have created a multimedia memorial entitled "Their Sacrifice, Our History" that allows visitors to experience the officers` lives, their extraordinary duty to the City and their powerful legacies. The memorial will be unveiled at a special event in the lobby of the Comcast Center on Thursday, October 15, at 6:00 PM.

    Since 1828, 266 officers have given their lives to protect the citizens of Philadelphia. The interactive memorial shares the stories of the officers` lives along with descriptions of their careers and the tragic events that took their lives. The memorial was designed in an effort to help educate the public about the ultimate sacrifice they gave to protect and serve others. A new website honoring the fallen officers will also be introduced.

          Weren't they vandalized some time ago and never really repaired properly? I thought I remembered reading something about that?

            Comcast partners with PPD on developing a 21st century memorial, which will be
            installed in the lobby of Police Headquarters
            PHILADELPHIA--(Business Wire)--
            Police Department headquarters will soon be home to a new digital,
            state-of-the-art memorial called "Their Sacrifice, Our History," honoring all
            officers who have fallen in the line of duty in the history of the Department,
            dating back to the year 1828. The interactive memorial was unveiled during a
            private event on Thursday, October 15, 2009, in the lobby of Comcast Center,
            1701 JFK Boulevard, at 6:00pm. The memorial features a 42-inch interactive
            touch-screen panel showcasing phillyheroes.org, a dedicated website with
            pictures and biographies of the Department`s fallen heroes.

            "We needed a way to be able to tell the stories for all of our fallen heroes,"
            said Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey. "Thanks to our partnership with
            Comcast, we`ve been able to bring a tremendously important part of the
            Department`s history for all to see. This is an everlasting tribute for the
            Department and the City of Philadelphia."

            "Their Sacrifice, Our History" is a partnership between the Philadelphia Police
            Department and Comcast Corporation, who worked together to design a memorial to
            visually honor all officers who have died in the line of duty. "This is a great
            example of what can happen when the business community supports our police
            officers," said Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #5, President John McNesby.
            "With this memorial, we can share the memories of our fallen heroes with the
            public."

            "Comcast is honored to join the Philadelphia Police Department in commemorating
            the lives and service of our fallen officers through this memorial," said David
            L. Cohen, Executive Vice President, Comcast Corporation. "Our collective hope is
            that this interactive platform will become a symbol for the courage of these
            officers who gave their lives to serve and protect this great city."

            "We are so privileged to be able to share this memorial not only with all of our
            surviving families, but with our entire city," said Mayor Michael Nutter. "This
            is an excellent private-public partnership, and I`m extremely grateful that we
            have come together to honor the sacrifice made by our men and women in blue."

            Since 1828, 266 officers have given their lives to protect the citizens of
            Philadelphia. This multimedia memorial shares the stories of their lives and the
            tragic events that took their lives in an effort to help educate the public
            about the ultimate sacrifice they gave to protect and serve others.

            After the unveiling ceremony, the memorial will be available to the public for
            one day, Friday, October 16, at Comcast Center. It will later be moved to Police
            Headquarters, 750 Race Street, and available to the public. For more
