National Police Week, honoring officers who dedicate their lives to public safety

Posted: Updated:

(KYTX) - National Police Week is May 11-17, 2014.

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15th falls, as National Police Week.

Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.
