This Week is National Police Week 2017

National Police Week began yesterday, beginning with Peace Officers Memorial Day, which occurred Sunday, May 15.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The National Peace Officers' Memorial Service, which is sponsored by the Grand Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police, is one in a series of events which includes the Candlelight Vigil, which is sponsored by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF), and seminars sponsored by Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.)

The Candelight Vigil occurred last Friday, May 13, during which 394 newly-inscribed fallen officers' names will be formally dedicated at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

National Police Week is a collaborative effort of many organizations dedicated to honoring America's law enforcement community. The principal organizers of National Police Week include:

National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF), which produces the annual Candlelight Vigil.
