Ever Watchful


Susan Wagner



The Law Enforcement Officers Memorial was designed by the architecture and environment consulting company EDAW. The prominent feature of the memorial is a life-size sculpture of an officer who looks over his shoulder to watch the city. Wagner used real police equipment, including a disabled gun, to create the sculpture in her Pittsburgh studio. 

Susan Wagner (b. 1950) lives and works in Pittsburgh. She is a sculptor and a painter. Her figurative sculptures can be seen throughout Pittsburgh and other locations around the world such as the National Baseball Hall of Fame  and The Vatican.
