In addition, Peace Officers Memorial Day is annually recognized on May 15th, with National Police Week recognized May 15th to May 21st.
Take a moment to recognize those who protect our communities. The men and women in blue have come under fire, literally, over the past several years. Like all emergency personnel and the U.S. Armed Forces, these brave people are often taken for granted and overlooked until disaster strikes.
Time to set the record straight.
