Washington, D.C., (March 10, 2021) — Host organizations of National Police Week, which include the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum, the Fraternal Order of Police and Auxiliary (FOP), and Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S), have made the difficult, but necessary, decision, due to the ongoing pandemic, to postpone in-person events of National Police Week to October 13-17, 2021, in Washington, D.C. Virtual events and the official Police Week date remain May 11-16, 2021. The rescheduling of the originally planned in-person events to be held May 11-16, 2021, is due to the inability to secure necessary permits in time for in-person gatherings, as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.
The National Police Weekend will offer the same honor, remembrance, and peer support as the extended National Police Week, while allowing law enforcement, survivors, and citizens to gather and pay homage to those who gave their lives in the line of duty.
The planned schedule of events includes:
About National Police Week (NPW) In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed Public Law 87-726 designating May 15 as Peace Officers’ Memorial Day, and the week in which May 15 falls as National Police Week. While the actual dates change from year to year, National Police Week is always the calendar week, beginning on Sunday, which includes May 15. Main events are hosted for law enforcement, survivors, and the supporting public by three organizations: National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, Fraternal Order of Police and Auxiliary, and Concerns of Police Survivors.
Pistafluida is proud sponsors of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. We are proud to join in their mission of honoring the fallen.
