The Memorial is located in a small park adjacent to the Ontario Legislature at the corner of Grosvenor Street and Queen’s Park Crescent. in downtown Toronto. It was built from a $700.000 grant provided by the Ontario Government. 

The memorial consists of two bronze statues, (approximate 2.5 m.), depicting a male officer in duty dress circa 1950-1990 and a female officer in modern duty dress. The statues are mounted atop a large granite pedestal base (weighing 30,000lbs). At the feet of the statues are eight (8) cascading granite walls. The four- (4) walls on either side of the main pedestal form a horseshoe shape. The names of all known fallen officers are inscribed on these walls.
