May 15 is National Peace Officers Memorial Day

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week is an observance in the United States that pays tribute to the local, state, and federal peace officers who have died, or who have been disabled, in the line of duty. The Shenandoah Police Department is proud to have the amount of community support that we enjoy, and we strive daily to earn and keep that support.

Traditionally, members of the fallen’s families, both blood and blue, meet in our various states and the nation’s capital, during National Police Week, to pay respect for the sacrifices made and to support one another. This year, due to COVID-19, all ceremonies were canceled. While the official ceremonies were canceled, we can all take a minute to consider the newly added names to the States and National Peace Officers Memorials and the loved ones they left behind. We can reflect on the legacy of selflessness and personal sacrifice these brave men and women have left for others to follow. We can pray for the affected families and ask that they be given the strength to endure.

A Virtual Candlelight Vigil will be held at 7 pm (Central)  on May 13. You may register to view at http://support.nleomf.org/site/PageNavigator/2020VirtualCandlelightVigilRegistration.html
