National Police Week is Here!

Where Did It All Begin? National Police Week was started during John F. Kennedy’s presidency, in 1962. He proclaimed May 15th Peace Officers Memorial Day and established the surrounding week as National Police Week. In 1982, the first Memorial Service was held in Senate Park with about 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement gathered to remember the fallen. Since then, more events were added to National Police Week and now, the gathering ranges from 25,000 to 40,000 officers and personnel from all over the world. What Happens During Police Week? This year, Monday May 6th starts the week off by remembering the fallen with the Washington Area Law Enforcement Memorial Service. The Annual Blue Mass will be held Tuesday to remember the sacrifices made by law enforcement and to ask for protection for the future. As the week presses on, you can take part in National Police Week’s 5k, the Law Enforcement Unity Tour Arrival Ceremony, and attend the Annual Steve Young National Honor Guard Competition and Pipe Band Competition.
