412th Security Forces Squadron hosts National Police Week events May 15-19

412th Security Forces Squadron members at last year’s National Police Week retreat ceremony.

Team Edwards and the 412th Security Forces Squadron will observe National Police Week with a slate of events May 15-19, 2017.

Police week is a time designated to remember and celebrate past and present civilian and military law enforcement officers, as well as the survivors of those who make the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of their duties. The week is observed to ensure they are not forgotten.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed Public Law 87-726 designating May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day, and the week in which May 15 falls as National Police Week.

The law was amended by the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, Public Law 103-322, signed by President Bill Clinton, directing the United States flag be displayed at half-staff on all government buildings on May 15 each year.

May 15: Police Week Opening Ceremony begins at 7:15 a.m. at the Airman Leadership School Drill Pad. Beginning at 10 a.m. there will be a Combat Arms Training and Maintenance display and K-9 demonstration at the Base Exchange.

While the actual dates change from year to year, National Police Week is always the calendar week beginning on Sunday, which includes May 15.

Below are a list of events along with contact information if you’d like to participate.
