Long Description:
The insignia of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Union County Sheriff, Marysville Police, Richwood Police, and Plain City Police Department are shown on the monument.

Named on the monument are two members of the Sheriff's Department killed in the line of duty:
Sergeant Roger L. Beekman, September 19, 1979
Sheriff Harry L. Wolfe, January 21, 1982

Also on the memorial:

I never dreamed it would be me,
My name for all eternity
Recorded here at this hallowed place.
Alas, my name, no more my face.

"In the line of duty," I hear them say.
My family now, the price will pay.
My folded flag stained with their tears.
We only had those few short years.

The badge no longer on my chest,
I sleep now in eternal rest.
My sword I pass to those behind
And pray they keep this thought in mind.

I never dreamed it would be me
And with heavy heart and bended knee,
I ask for all here from the past,
Dear God, let my name be the last.
