A man has pleaded guilty to defacing the NSW Police Wall of Remembrance in central Sydney.

Hayden Jones, 29, entered his plea to three charges of destroying and damaging police property - two charges relating to the memorial and one relating to a police van - at the Central Local Court on Tuesday.

When the memorial at The Domain was damaged in May, police said they had to remove 28 panels from the memorial as part of the clean-up and Commissioner Andrew Scipione said he was "appalled".

"There is no more important or sacred place in the country to the NSW Police Force than this memorial," he said.

Jones, from the inner western suburb of Lilyfield, is in custody and will return to court for sentence on October 7.
