The name of each law enforcement officer who died in the line of duty must be inscribed on the Monument.

 

The bill also would require the name of each individual from Michigan who qualified as an officer who died in the line of duty for purposes of inclusion on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial to be inscribed on the Monument.
