It gives us great honor to announce that Jeremy H. from Covington, La., is the winner of this year's Harley-Davidson raffle! In fact, Jeremy is in town for National Police Week activities. Congratulations, Jeremy!
I bought tickets for the motorcycle raffle, never received them, was told today they don't make refunds. I want Craig Floyd to know I think this is a scam and I'll spread this message far and loud. They were purchased 2 weeks ago as well and I can verify that with the deduction from the debit card account so if anyone cares to see proof, just ask. This is a SCAM of a raffle if you don't have your tickets the day of the drawing. SCAM!!!
In all the years my Dad was an officer of the New York City Police Department, my Mom had only one huge fear - the doorbell would ring, and Dad's Captain, and Precinct Chaplain would be there. Thankfully that day never did come. Dad was, for 15 years, in the 103rd Precinct in So. Jamaica, NY. Boy did he hate it there. But it was a job. Then, and quite unexpectedly, he had an angina attack. Dad was in the hospital, and for a different reason. But it also spelled out the end of his career as a police officer. He was hoping to get to at least 25 years, but was ever so close. I guess Mom just didn't want to see dad's name on the Wall. She never did.

Incredible. This photo was taken at last night's Candlelight Vigil at the National Peace Officers' Memorial Service, a tradition which marks the beginning of National Police Week in Washington, D.C., which is sponsored by the National Fraternal Order of Police, National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF), and Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.). "In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. The Memorial Service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of approximately 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement. Decades later, the event, more commonly known as National Police Week, has grown to a series of events which attracts thousands of survivors and law enforcement officers to our Nation's Capital each year. National Police Week draws in between 25,000 to 40,000 attendees. The attendees come from departments throughout the United States as well as from agencies throughout the world. This provides a unique opportunity to meet others who work in law enforcement. In that spirit, the Fraternal Order of Police DC Lodge #1 sponsors receptions each afternoon and evening during Police Week. These events are open to all law enforcement personnel and are an experience unlike any other. National Police Week is a collaborative effort of many organizations dedicated to honoring America's law enforcement community."

Yesterday, we hosted the Emerald Society & Pipeband March and Service at the Memorial, remembering all law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty but particularly those of Gaelic descent. See our photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/nleomf/albums/72157668437462085
Yesterday, our Standing Watch for the Fallen Flag Ceremony began a rotation of honor guard teams standing vigil at the center medallion of the Memorial with our ceremonial wreath until midnight, when "Taps" was played and the Memorial's flags were lowered to half-staff in recognition of Peace Officers Memorial Day.
Today at the Capitol, the 35th Annual National Peace Officers' Memorial Service recognizes Peace Officers Memorial Day. Don't forget to fly your flags at half staff.

Remember that today is National Peace Officers Memorial Day. Flags should be at half-mast, in accordance to a Congressional order. We remember our officers who have sacrificed their lives for our protection.
Yesterday, a group of law enforcement explorers honored the memory of Police Officer Craig A. Birkholz, of Wisconsin. Prior to serving the Fond du Lac Police Department—and the United States Army in Iraq and Afghanistan—Officer Birkholz was himself a Kenosha Police Explorer. His life of service will always be remembered here at the Memorial. View more photos here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/nleomf/sets/72157668339688666
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. The Lake Forest Police Department will fly the Blue Line Flag throughout the week of May 15 – May 21, 2016 to commemorate the sacrifices all police officers make to protect our citizens. Two Lake Forest Police Officers paid the ultimate price: Officer Clyde Spradling was killed in a motor vehicle accident on July 25, 1915 while on-duty; and Officer James Sage was killed on November 19, 1923 in a motor vehicle accident while on patrol. The principle organizer of Police Week is the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund which built and maintains the National Police Memorial. The Memorial features two curving, 304-foot-long blue-gray marble walls. Carved on these walls are the names of more than 19,000 officers who have been killed in the line of duty throughout U.S. history, dating back to the first known death in 1791. On average, one law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty somewhere in the United States every 57 hours. #thinblueline #nationalpoliceweek Lake Forest Police Department City of Lake Forest, Illinois Government
Today is National Law Enforcement Officers' Memorial Day. It is one of only two days a year that the American flag is required to be flown at half-mast. The Placer County Sheriff's Office encourages all residents and businesses to lower their U.S. Flags in honor and remembrance of our fallen peace officers; including the 123 officers who lost their lives this year protecting our communities. This year, as in years past, we placed a PCSO patch and remembrance card next to the names of all nine fallen PCSO deputies on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington DC. In doing so, we honor our pledge to never forget these men who gave their lives for the people of Placer County.
This morning at the Shomrim Society Memorial Service, we remember Police Officer Noah Leotta and all Jewish officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
Congratulations to all the Officer of the Month and Destination Zero award winners honored tonight at our Annual Awards Dinner.
