Thank You for Supporting United Police Fund
The United Police Fund's Symposium on Pressing Police Health issues such as Suicide, Cumulative PTSD, Stress in Law Enforcement and the ongoing War On Police, has also been cancelled. Due to the COVID-19 threat to public safety and the cancellation of large groups of people we also had to cancel our meeting. When the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund announces the dates for the 2020 observance for officers killed in the line of duty we will re book and announce where and when we will have the Symposium.
Stay Safe and observe all personal safety notices.
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.
National Police Week is a collaborative effort of many organizations dedicated to honoring America’s law enforcement community. The principal organizers of National Police Week include:
Each year on May 13th, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund produces its annual Candlelight Vigil—a signature event of National Police Week in Washington, DC. During the Candlelight Vigil, fallen officers whose names were engraved on the Memorial’s walls that spring are formally dedicated. Held on the National Mall, in addition to the lighting of candles and reading of names, the Candlelight Vigil includes remarks by dignitaries, and musical tributes performed to honor the memory of these fallen officers.
