 Iowa Peace Officer Memorial, Des Moines, IA is located on a grassy hill between the state Capital Building and the Oran Pape State Office Building.  The memorial was moved and rededicated on May 10, 2013 during ceremonies honoring three fallen officers who died in the line of duty.  The new memorial includes colored and polished concrete that incorporates Forta Ferro, a macro-synthetic fiber system at a dosage rate of 4.0 lbs./cubic yard of concrete.  The color and polished exterior concrete was ground to an expose aggregate appearance and sealed.  The final appearance is amazing and blends in well with the original design elements that include granite and stone monuments.  The construction of the relocated memorial was done by a talented group of volunteer contractors and suppliers.  The group included CSI Ready Mix and Manatt’s Inc. that jointly supplied the concrete, Absolute Concrete was the concrete contractor, and Artistic Concrete was the polishing contractor.
