Great Skyline View of Houston
Houston Police Officer’s Memorial is shaped like a Greek cross that consists of five stepped pyramids (ziggurat design).
The central pyramid rises 12 ½ feet above ground level, and the four outer pyramids are inverted to sink 12 feet into the ground. Every pyramid base is 40 feet square.
There is a reflecting pool surrounded by four inscribed slabs of polished Texas pink granite located at the sculptures apex (of the central pyramid). The inscriptions bear the names of over eighty officers that died in the line of duty. A smaller version of the reflection pool is near the parking lot, for those visitors who are unable to climb to the apex
