Lincolnshire Police HQ Memorial Garden
Project Overview
Lincolnshire Police held a national competition in 2016 to design and implement a Memorial Garden to remember and celebrate those officers who lost their lives during service. We not only won the competition and carried out detailed design for the garden, but also acted as Contract Administrators for the project.
Lincolnshire Police had decided to build a new bespoke memorial garden with the generous donation they had received as a bequest in the will of a local resident, Val Hills.
The garden was officially opened in January 2017 by the Bishop of Lincoln the Rt Revd Christopher Lowson, and the ribbon cut by Lord Lieutenant for Lincolnshire, Tony Dennis.

The garden features nine pillars, representing each one of Sir Robert Peel’s Principles of Policing, which are a fitting reminder of the standards that Lincolnshire Police hold themselves to every day. From each of those principles a single word was chosen for each pillar: Prevention, Approval, Cooperation, Proportionate, Impartiality, Restorative, Relationships, Humility and Integrity.
The materials used in the construction of the walls and paths were all sourced and bought locally. They were carefully chosen to reflect the local landscape, to contribute to the sense of place, and to help make the garden a place of quiet contemplation and remembrance.
“The team at epd have done an outstanding job in bringing the design to life. The professionalism and quality of the workmanship is a testament to the dedication that was invested.”
Neil Rhodes – Lincolnshire Chief Constable
