Celebrate Our Fallen Heroes during National Police Week

This week, May 11-17, marks National Police Week. In 1962, President Kennedy signed a proclamation which authorized May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which the 15th falls as National Police Week.

This time each year, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world come together in Washington D.C. to participate in various events through the week to honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Being a police officer is sometimes a thankless job. These individuals work tirelessly to keep our communities safe day end and day out. Their commitment to justice is incredibly appreciated by the community, so please take the time to appreciate the police in your community.
