|National Police Week 2016
Sunday, May 15, 2016 through Saturday, May 21, 2016
Please note: Because May 15, 2016 falls on a Sunday, some events will take place before the official dates of police week in 2016.
In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 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.
Visit the National Police Week Retail Center, located at First Trinity Lutheran Church, 309 E Street (corner of 4th and E Streets NW) 1/2 block from the Memorial.
