National Police Week offers honor, remembrance and peer support while allowing law enforcement, survivors and citizens to come together and honor those who gave their lives in the exercise of their functions.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation designating 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 are converging on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events that honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
