NATIONAL PEACE OFFICERS MEMORIAL DAY

National Police Week

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. 

In honor of those men and women that have paid the ultimate sacrifice, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office will wear badge shrouds until Saturday May 16th.  

Sheriff Bill Overton said today, "Every man and woman who puts on the badge does so knowing the dangers of the job. Under normal conditions, I would have a group of our deputies at the events in Washington, DC, but due to the COVID-19 issue, those ceremonies were cancelled. This week, we can and will remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice of service. Honoring them and praying for their loved ones."
