National Police Week 2010: Honoring and Remembering our Fallen Law Enforcement Officers

CPD Logo

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed Public Law 87-726 that set aside May 15th as National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day and the week in which May 15th    falls as National Police Week. This year, National Police Week will run from Sunday, May 10th through Saturday, May 16th.  The law was later amended by the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1995, Public Law 103-322 signed by President Bill Clinton, directing that the flag of the United States be displayed at half-staff on all government buildings on May 15 each year as a tribute to law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty.

Clarksville – Again this year, communities across the United States will come together during National Police Week, May 9th-15th, to honor and remember those law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as the family members, friends and fellow officers they left behind. «Read the rest of this article»
