A Brief History:
Origination: In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15th falls. National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those fallen law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.
What is National Police Week? National Police Week occurs every May. In 2022 we will be commemorating it with live, in-person events. National Police Week is observed this year officially from May 11th–17th. Some more of the festivities will continue the traditional “Police Week” the complete May 15th–21st.
34th Annual Candlelight Vigil: The National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum will hold ceremonies, including the 34th Annual Candlelight Vigil, to honor the fallen law enforcement officers whose names have recently been added to the Memorial.
Celebrated: Since the year 1962, the whole week and day of May 15th every year!
