Scott Jangro is the owner of FamilyTreeCircles.com and has documented roots back to Mayflower passengers Stephen Hopkins and William Brewster. If you're wondering what he's doing when he's mysteriously absent, here's some links to other stuff he's responsible for: about.me/jangro.

Evidence Explained by Elizabeth Shown Mills has a page on Memorial Plaques in a cemetery. (page 216) I would think this also applies to a plaque in a police precinct, of course replacing the Cemetery with the police precinct.

Source List Entry
Cemetery, Location, Item Type or Format

Example:
Congregation Beth Am Sanctuary (Alamonte Springs, Florida). Yahrzeit (memorial) plaques.

First (Full) Reference Note
1. Cemetery, Location, Item, Data collection Info, Date Read or Photographed

Example:
1. Congregation Beth Am Sanctuary (Alamonte Springs, Florida), Arthur B Friedman yahrzeit (memorial) plaque; Photographed by Gladys Friedman Paulin, 1 October 2005

Subsequent Short Note
11. Cemetery, Location, Item

Example:
11. Congregation Beth Am Sanctuary (Alamonte Springs, Fla), Arthur B. Friedman yahrzeit plaque.

I would put in the geographical coordinates / Google Earth link and a photograph of the plaque.
