The National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum will host Weekend of Remembrance: Honoring those who serve and those who made the ultimate sacrifice, Oct. 10-11, 2020. Portions of the weekend events will be live-streamed and/or take place remotely due to public health concerns during the coronavirus pandemic.

On Saturday, Oct. 10, National Run for the Badge 5K will take place remotely in cities across the country. An awards ceremony will take place via Zoom beginning at 5 p.m. (EDT). Click here for additional Run information.

The Weekend of Remembrance virtual memorial service includes a reading of the names of 307 law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty in 2019 and whose names were engraved on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial walls in May 2020. The ceremony will be live-streamed on the Memorial’s Facebook page at 10 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 11.

This first National Faith & Blue Weekend is a joint effort between the nation’s top law enforcement organizations and a diverse collection of houses of worship to strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and the communities they serve through joint community projects. Police officers will distribute care kits assembled by a team of dozens of volunteers from local law enforcement, faith, and civic communities to assist the homeless across the Washington, DC area and on the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum campus Oct. 11.
