National Police Week

This week is National Police Week. This week, as in all weeks, we honor the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty whilte protecting the communities and safe-guarding democracy.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
