Editor's Note:

Members of the PoliceOne staff have just returned from National Police Week. Each year, this event serves as a valuable reminder of why we do what we do. It also gives us a chance to stand among those who come to pay tribute to the officers who have fallen in the line of duty.

For those of you who couldn't attend this year, we've created a slideshow of images from the week so you, too, can pause, reflect and pay tribute.

The thin blue line



They call it the thin blue line, the line between order and chaos.

As we observe National Police Week, it is proper to reflect on those who no longer stand among us on the thin blue line.

I'm sure every one of us knows at least one of the names carved on those honored stones along the walkway "amongst the lions" ... Full Story

Reflecting on our vulnerabilities



During National Police Week it's important that we honor the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
