VSA and sheriff’s offices across Virginia recognize National Police Week 2022
In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.
This week, VSA, VSI, and sheriff’s officers across the Commonwealth continue to honor and reflect on those that paid the ultimate sacrifice. Join us in saying THANK YOU for law enforcement officers’ service and dedication.
Be sure to check out just a few of the many ways that local sheriff’s offices have been taking part in National Police Week, along with footage from events and ceremonies being held by the NLEOMF.
