President Trump Gives Remarks at the 36th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service

The 36th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service will be held on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol at 11 a.m. on Monday, May 15, 2017.  This ceremony honors the law enforcement officers who were killed in the line of duty. It is sponsored by the Grand Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police.

May 15 was designated as Peace Officers Memorial Day in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy and generally takes place during the week designated as ‘National Police Week.’

The week draws 25,000 to 40,000 survivors and law enforcement officers to Washington, D.C. each year to participate in events that honor those who have died in the line of duty.
