National Police Week (May 9 - 15)
This week is National Police Week, which pays tribute to local, state and federal peace officers. This year, the week is observed Sunday, May 9 through Saturday, May 15. Peace Officers Memorial Day is also on Saturday, May 15. It is a day specifically honoring law enforcement officers killed or disabled in the line of duty.
