Police Officer's Memorial Day

Police Officer's Memorial Day

When: Always on May 15th

Police Officer's Memorial Day honors and remembers police officers who gave their lives while on duty.

Police officers protect us 24/7 every day of the year. It's a sometimes dangerous job. They know they are putting their lives at risk to make and keep us safe. Police officers know the risks, and accept them. Sometimes, they pay the ultimate price.

Please show our respect and appreciation for police officers everyday.

Ways to participate in this day:

Show appreciation for police officers.
Make a donation to a police officer fund or memorial
Participate in activities honoring officers who have died on duty.
Better still, create a memorial event, if there isn't one in your area.
Thank your police officers for a job well done.

Origin of Police Officer's Memorial Day:
Police Officer's Memorial Day was created and established as May 15th by an Act of Congress.

    Thank you for this information. My husband is a retired Alaska State Trooper. We know officers who have been lost.

    I sure didn't know this! Thanks for sharing this information! I had a cousin who was a police officer a long time ago. He is gone now, killed in an automobile accident when headed to Northern Michigan for a deer hunting trip. So sad............

Does Corsicana have any kind of recognition of this day? You would think we would hear about it on the news.
