To honor, celebrate and remember our brave American Law Enforcement, May 10th – May 16th is deemed 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.
Even though our nation and the world is currently facing this battle with COVID-19 and has resulted in the cancellation of public gatherings in Washington, DC, during National Police Week 2020, we can still honor our law enforcement by sharing photos and memories of loved ones who have put their lives on the line to protect our communities.
On Wednesday, May 13, 2020, at 8:00 pm Eastern, the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum will be providing a virtual candlelight vigil and the reading of the names of the 307 fallen heroes who are being memorialized on the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
For more information or to light a virtual candle, visit the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund page.
