South law enforcement officers celebrate National Police Week

South law enforcement officers celebrate National Police Week

Even though law enforcement officers wear uniforms of many different colors, many wear something blue to show support for officers on this solemn day of May 15.

The White House will be lit up in blue on Monday night, to honor the nation's law fallen enforcement officers.

"Last year, 118 officers died in the line of duty, and of those, 66 were victims of malicious attacks".

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15th falls, as National Police Week. "We remember these heroes because this is our modest way or repaying debt that can never be fully repaid", said sessions.

All fallen officers were to be remembered at events scheduled to be held in Washington, D.C., as part of National Police Week.

Andy Parkes column: Mental health issues can hit us at any time
Just last month, Kaiser Permanente debuted an ad featuring a surprising spokesperson for mental health: Stephan Curry. Sometimes the answer is clear, but often the distinction between mental health and mental illness isn't so obvious.

This week is National Police Week and law enforcement agencies all over the country are honoring those killed in the line of duty.

Observing National Police Week, the President spoke at a memorial service on the Capitol Steps. "This is a demanding career choice, there's a lot of sacrifice for not only those who are in law enforcement, but their families as well".

"Police officers, especially at HPD, are the most unselfish people on this earth because they're willing to help someone they don't even know", Okimoto said.

The rest died before 2016, but their names were not yet added to the memorial.

For the active law enforcement professionals in the crowd, it was a reminder that the communities they serve recognize that service. "We come down here, take a little extra time out of our busy schedules, and just make it about him".
