Upcoming Events And Notices At A Glance:
National Peace Officers Memorial Day
Proclamation Signed by
President John F. Kennedy

To pay tribute to the law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice
for our country and to voice our appreciation for all those who currently serve on the
front lines of the battle against crime, the Congress, by a joint resolution approved
October 1, 1962 (75 Stat.676), has authorized and requested the President to
designate May 15 of each year as "Peace Officers Memorial Day," and the week in
which it falls as
“Police Week” and by Public Law 103-322 (36 U.S.C. 175) has
requested that the flag be flown at half-staff on Peace Officers' Memorial Day.

Every year since, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the
world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events
honoring the men and women whom lost their lives in service to their communities.

The first official memorial service took place on May 15, 1982. On that date,
approximately 125 people gathered in Senate Park to honor 91 law enforcement
officers. Over the past 22 years we have honored over 3,000 law enforcement officers
from around our nation.

Today, the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service has become one in a series of
events which includes the Candlelight Vigil, which is sponsored by the National Law
Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and seminars sponsored by Concerns of
Police Survivors.

The Grand Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police and the Grand Lodge Auxiliary of the
Fraternal Order of Police are very proud to be the official sponsor of the Memorial

As we reflect over the past twenty-five years, we can be proud of how the
FOP has
made this annual service such a prominent event.
We Remember....
