Instructions for Posting a Police Memorials Waymark:

Marks accepted for this category are all memorials dedicated to fallen law/peace enforcement officers. The memorial must be stationary and permanent. Stationary means the memorial does not move to different locations. A memorial with moving parts is accepted.

It can include plaques mounted to vertical and horizontal structures. It can also include a memorial dedicated to multiple categories of employment as long as a law enforcement officer is listed as part of the memorial and was serving in the line of duty during the incident.

Memorial roadways, bridges, and other infrastructure are also accepted. Since memorial roadways can be very long, multiple marks are permitted for the same roadway as long as the coordinates and default pictures are taken at or near the memorial sign/monument.
