National Police Week

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.
