May 12 - 18, 2019, is National Police Week

National Police Week is a collaborative effort of many organizations dedicated to honoring America’s law enforcement community.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day. Each year, the week in which May 15th falls, is declared National Police Week. In conjunction with National Police Week, the Annual Candlelight Vigil at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial will take place tonight. This year’s ceremony will honor 144 federal, state and local law enforcement officers who were killed in the line of duty in 2018. The newly engraved names of officers will be read aloud and formally dedicated during the candlelight vigil.
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. Tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC during National Police Week to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate price. The memorial, located at Judiciary Square, honors law enforcement officers from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories and federal law enforcement and military police agencies who have died in the line of duty throughout history. Since the first recorded police death in 1791, there have been over 21,000 law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.  In 2018, line of duty law enforcement deaths rose by approximately 9% in the U.S.
In 1984 the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) was established to tell the stories of American law enforcement officers and honor the fallen.  If you would like more information about the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, visit
