This Monday, May 15, holds significant meaning as it is observed as Peace Officers Memorial Day. This day, initially established by President John F. Kennedy in 1962, is dedicated to honoring the courageous local, state, and federal peace officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice or have been disabled while dutifully serving their communities. It coincides with National Police Week, which spans from May 14 to May 20.
We are truly blessed to have remarkable men and women who have taken an oath to serve and protect. Their unwavering dedication to ensuring public safety is admirable, and we hold immense gratitude for their selfless acts. Let us use this day to remember and pay tribute to the fallen heroes and express our heartfelt appreciation for their extraordinary service.
