National Police Week

HISTORY OF POLICE WEEK

National Police WeekThe History of Police Week
From the Concerns of Police Survivors Group

May 15 has been National Peace Officers Memorial Day, and the week containing May 15 has been National Police Week (sometimes know as Police Memorial Week) since President John F. Kennedy signed Public Law 87-726 on October 1, 1962.

The National Peace Officers' Memorial Day Service on May 15 draws thousands from all across the nation.

But it was not until May 15, 1982, that the first National Peace Officers' Memorial Day Service was held.

National Police WeekWashington, D.C. activities during National Police Week now include the annual Candlelight Vigil at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and COPS' National Police Survivors' Seminars as well as the National Peace Officers' Memorial Day Service.

The National Police Survivors' Seminars offer peer-support and professional counselors to assist survivors as they move along their path of grief.

Public Law 87-726, signed by President John F. Kennedy in 1962, was amended by the 103rd Congress as part of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. President Bill Clinton signed Public Law 103-322 which directs that the flag of the United States on all Government buildings be displayed at half-staff on May 15, National Peace Officers' Memorial Day.

National Police WeekToday, National Police Week is a solemn period each year where every officer should reflect on those who have fallen.  Police Week is more than just "our profession's" secretary's day.

It should be celebrated in every stationhouse throughout the country.  Muster rooms should be adorned with decor reminding every officer of the week's meaning.  Every shift briefing should include a bullet on the week.  Prayers and moments of silence should should be held in unison throughout the country.

National Police Week is ours.  It is up to us to make it mean something.

Please support the National Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial Fund.
