Celebrate National Police Week May 12 2015
Sunday, May 10—Saturday, May 16, 2015
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.
View the full roll call of names of the 273 fallen law enforcement heroes added to the Memorial year in 2015.
Visit the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, centered in the 400 block of E Street, NW, Washington, DC and the National Police Week Retail Center, located at First Trinity Lutheran Church, 309 E Street (corner of 4th and E Streets NW) 1/2 block from the Memorial.
