The NACA Memorial Wall and Gardens is a permanent display/tribute to remember and honor NACA members employed as animal control officers that have died in the line of duty.

The gardens will serve as a backdrop for the wall providing a serene and private area to reflect on the loss of these fallen members and to honor their memory.
