National Police Week - National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial FundNational Police Week - National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National
Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which
May 15 falls, as National Police Week.

Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962,
National Police Week pays special recognition to
those law enforcement officers who have lost their
lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection
of others.

Over one hundred officers are killed in the line of
duty each year. We vow to never forget their
sacrifice and their families sacrifice.

Day of Prayer.
