In 2009, the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office unveiled a wall where the names of murder victims are engraved in polished granite.
The wall is located in our Victims' Memorial Courtyard outside the downtown Riverside office. There are more than 2,000 names engraved on the wall, dating back as far as could be found in county records.
Each year, during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, additional names are engraved on the wall in remembrance of those who have lost their life because of crime.
This annual tribute provides a small amount of solace for families of murder victims and brings our community together as we acknowledge the loss and the tragic journey that homicide, drunk driving and manslaughter creates.
