Chandler Firefighter (Public Safety) Memorial

Chandler Firefighter MemorialOn Sept. 11, 2009, the City of Chandler dedicated a new Public Safety Plaza and memorial to honor police officers and firefighters who have been killed while serving their community.    
   
The memorial features two larger-than-life bronze panel sculptures – one representing Police and one Fire personnel. The panels  – titled "To Protect & To Serve" – sit on two granite walls. On the back of each wall is the logo of the respective department, a prayer, and the names of Chandler officers and firefighters lost in the line of duty.

The Chandler Police memorial lists the names of three officers:
James R. Snedigar, Robert J. Nielsen and Carlos L. Ledesma.

We are fortunate that the Chandler Fire memorial does not have any names listed at this time.

The memorial plaza is located between the Chandler Police Department and the Chandler Fire, Health & Medical Department headquarters, on the south side of Boston St., west of Delaware St.
