Police Memorial Week
By Sergeant Donald Sabo
May 11, 2020

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.
This year with COVID-19 the Washington, DC events have been canceled. This week we honor all the Law Enforcement Officers who gave their lives for our communities.
