NATIONAL POLICE WEEK: May 9-15-- In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a
proclamation which designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week
in which that date falls as "Police Week". Every year since, 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.
The first official memorial service took place on May 15, 1982. On that date,
approximately 125 people gathered in Senate Park to honor 91 law enforcement
officers. Over the past 22 years we have honored over 3,000 law enforcement officers
from around our nation.
