National Police Week Underway Through May 22nd

All this week is National Police Week…a week set aside to remember law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty…a number, according to Sara Slone from Concerns of Police Survivors, has more than tripled over the past 10 years.

“When I came on in 2013, we honored 147 officers at Police Week. Last year, we honored over 530, and this year, we’re honoring 443.”

Different ceremonies and activities are planned throughout the week in our nation’s capitol.

National Police Week officially began Sunday and will run through next Monday, the 22nd.
