Learn More About National Police Week

National Police Week has grown to a series of events which attracts thousands of survivors and law enforcement officers to our Nation`s Capital each year

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated 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 converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
