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.

We’re asking County residents to help us in honoring America’s law enforcement community through a poster or photo that promotes positive community policing and trust building with community members.

Your poster or photo may include community members of all ages. This could be an adult who has had interaction with the police or a child in hopes of a career in policing or simply a poster of support.

Your poster or photo must be appropriate for all ages. Please send your submissions by Sunday May 10, 2020to
