National Police Week – Thank you from OPENonline!
Sunday May 12 – Saturday May 18, 2019
Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week is an observance in the United States that pays tribute to local, State and Federal law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice or have been disabled in the line of duty while protecting our citizens, communities, and country. It is also a time to show appreciation and thank those who are currently serving and defending us with courage and dedication on the front lines of the battle against crime.
Much of the holiday centers on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial wall in Washington, D.C., whose walls feature the names of close to 22,000 law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line of duty.
In addition to the memorial service, there are activities scheduled all week long. Thousands of law enforcement personnel from departments across the country, as well as from agencies throughout the world, travel to Washington D.C. for the events and to pay their respects.
OPENonline would like to offer our sincere appreciation to all law enforcement personnel past and present. Thank you for your service and sacrifice, and the protection you continue to provide to the citizens of the United States!
