The following information is authorized for release by the Fairfax County Police Department - Public Information Office (PIO). For questions concerning any portion of this report, please contact PIO at 703-246-2253.


In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation, designating May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as "Police Week." Every year since, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world come to Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. The first official memorial service took place on May 15, 1982. On that date, approximately 125 people gathered in Senate Park to honor 91 law enforcement officers. Over the past 22 years we have honored over 3,000 law enforcement officers from around our nation. Today, the National Peace Officers' Memorial Service has become one in a series of events which includes the Candlelight Vigil, which will be held at the National Law Enforcement Officers' Memorial in Washington DC (METRO Red Line to Judiciary Square station--parking is almost non-existent in the area). The Police Unity Tour, to which many of you have already contributed support, is scheduled to arrive from Richmond at 2pm on May 12. For further information about ALL the events taking place during Police Week, visit their website: Thanks
