A Message to Law Enforcement Agencies
and to the Survivors of the Fallen
After the recent announcements canceling in person public events surrounding National Police Week 2020, a decision has been made to honor our current fallen officers alongside those we will honor during the traditional National Police Week events in 2021. The organizations who plan the main events of National Police Week made this decision to afford all surviving families and coworkers the opportunity to honor their officers in Washington, DC. Several factors went into this decision, including the uncertainty of the evolving situation of the COVID-19 virus and the logistics in rescheduling an event as large as National Police Week.
National Police Week 2020 will still be recognized with virtual events and initiatives happening around the country. A virtual Candlelight Vigil hosted by NLEOMF is planned for May 13, an interactive virtual event hosted by C.O.P.S. is planned for May 14, and the Fraternal Order of Police will host a Memorial Video Event on May 15. Stay connected with us as we continue to announce new events every week. Our fallen will never be forgotten.
