Nearly 60 years ago, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation designating May 15 as Peace Officer’s Memorial Day and the week in which it 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.
