National Peace Officers Memorial Day

Peace Officers Memorial Day is a part of Police Week, paying tribute to local, State and Federal law enforcement officers.

Flags are flown at half-staff in memory of those officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Services honoring the fallen will be conducted across the country, including Washington, D.C.

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial wall in Washington, D.C. features the names of more than 19,000 law enforcement officers which have been killed in the line of duty.

Peace Officers Memorial Day was created on October 1, 1961. At that time, Congress asked the president to designate May 15 as a day to honor peace officers. On October 1, 1962, John F. Kennedy signed the bill into law. In 1994, Bill Clinton made an amendment through Public Law 103-322 that directed the United States flag be flown at half-staff on May 15.

Take a moment to reflect on those who have given their lives in one of the toughest professions around.

    Thanks for this post. May I add they are grossly underpaid for the privilege.
