Throughout National Police Week, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund will host many events to give people an opportunity to get involved. You can find a list of the events here.
Beginning May 3rd with the 22nd Annual Blue Mass, all parishioners and friends of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Washington, DC are invited to join hundreds of first responders from around the country.
For those that can’t attend in person there are other ways to get involved. On May 13th they will host the 28th Annual Candlelight Vigil on the National Mall. During the ceremony, the newly engraved names added to the Memorial this spring will be read aloud. For those who cannot attend in person, they can register to watch the Vigil live online or can pick a later date to watched the archived footage. Another way to get involved if you cannot attend in person is to donate and light a virtual candle, that can be viewed on online, to thank or recognize the service of an officer(s).
The National Peace Officer Memorial Day Ceremony will be held May 15th at the U.S. Capitol. After Police week is over there will still be Law Enforcement Appreciation Events throughout the Nation including many special nights at Major League Baseball games. In October as the Memorial celebrates its 25th Anniversary, 5.11 will be partnering to help support their Run for the Badge 5K.
