Happy New Year from Kootenai County Police and Fire Memorial Foundation. Cheers to you and your loved ones for a bright, safe and prosperous 2017.
By a joint resolution on October 1, 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed Public Law 87-726 that declared May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls as "National Police Week," the annual tribute to law enforcement service and sacrifice.
As Police Week officially kicks off, we remember that within this sea of names are individual men and women, moms, dads, husbands, wives, daughters, sons, and friends are forever lost. These heroes gave the ultimate sacrifice.
