The names of hundreds of Virginia public safety workers who've died in the line of duty will soon be a permanent fixture in Richmond.

The Virginia Public Safety Foundation has included 765 names on a roster so far. The group plans to have those names engraved on a Commonwealth Public Safety memorial at Capitol Square in Richmond.

Foundation members also say they'll review the records of historic cases of public safety workers who died while on the job. A date has not been set for when the memorial will go up.

So far, the foundation has only raised $800,000 of its $2 million goal for its construction.
