2009 Final Roll Call

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a Presidential Proclamation that set aside May 15 as National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day and the week of May 15 as National Police Week.

In 2009 we lost 126 Police Officers.

With Police Week now upon us please take a second to remember the 126 Police Officers who gave their life so that we may be safer. Please also keep their families in your prayers.
