Police Week 2012
National Police Week was established 50 years ago — back in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy. This year, National Police Week runs from Sunday, May 13th through Saturday, May 19th. In 2011, we lost 166 of our brothers and sisters, an increase of almost 14 percent over 2010. Instead of watching those lines of duty deaths climb by 14 percent this year, let's dedicate ourselves to lowering all police duty fatalities by 14 percent.
