Celebrating Police Week

Posted on: May 17, 2018

 

In 1982, an annual Memorial Service gathering in Senate Park began and later became known as Police Week.  Survivors and supporters honoring those fallen peace officers grew into a series of events that now includes candlelight vigils, pipe band competitions, conferences and National Peace Officers Memorial Service which is sponsored by the Grand Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police.

 

PEACE OFFICERS MEMORIAL DAY is a part of Police Week, paying tribute to local, State and Federal law enforcement officers.

Flags are flown at half-staff in memory of those officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Services honoring the fallen will be conducted across the country, including Washington, D.C.

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial wall in Washington, D.C. features the names of more than 19,000 law enforcement officers which have been killed in the line of duty.
