May 10-16 is National Police Week & May 15 National Police Officers Memorial Day. Due to health concerns, the previously scheduled public events have been canceled.
The names of fallen U.S. law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty will be formally dedicated on the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washinton DC. This year, 307 more names are being engraved on those walls, and this dedication will take place during a virtual Candlelight Vigil on Wednesday, May 13, 2020.
