Since the first known line-of-duty death in 1786, more than 22,000 U.S. law enforcement officers have made the ultimate sacrifice. National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.
National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) is a principal organizer of National Police Week, alongside Concerns of Police Survivors and the Fraternal Order of Police/Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary (FOP/FOPA).
Historicaly taking place each May in Washington, D.C., NLEOMF will commemorate Police Week 2023 with virtual events that can be viewed from anywhere in the world.
