National Police Week 2019

Posted by: Jennifer Gomori Posted date: April 2, 2019

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

Events are planned at the national level in Washington D.C. and throughout the state including Michigan’s Peace Officers’ Candlelight Memorial Service, honoring local law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty. Several events will take place before the official dates of Police Week May 12-18, 2019.
