The Cincinnati police memorial on Ezzard Charles Drive, where it intersects Central Avenue in the West End, was completed in May 1991, said Fraternal Order of Police President Pete Ridder.

Money for the $160,000 project came from the city, FOP and private donations, he said. The half-block long memorial park includes three granite panels that list the almost 100 officers who have been killed in the line of duty since 1846.
The names of Officer Daniel Pope and Spc. Ronald Jeter, who were gunned down attempting to serve an arrest warrant in Clifton Heights over the weekend, will be added to the memorial.
The memorial also features an 8-foot bronze statue with a 1 1/2-foot pedestal of Frank ''Pappy'' Feldhaus - a ''cop's cop'' who retired in 1977 after 41 years on Cincinnati's police force. He died in 1980.
