NATIONAL PEACE OFFICER MEMORIAL DAY |
Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week is an observance in the United States that pays tribute to the local, state, and federal peace officers who have died, or who have been disabled, in the line of duty. Congress authorized the president to designate May 15 to honor peace officers. President John F. Kennedy signed the bill into law on October 1, 1962.
Every year since then, law enforcement agencies from across the nation have come together to honor those police officers who have died in the performance of their duty to the community.
In 2019, 128 federal, state and local law enforcement officers died in the line of duty, 5 of them in the State of Florida.
During National Police Week your Juno Beach Police Foundation asks that you express your appreciation and say "Thank You" to the men and women of the Juno Beach Police Department who are out there daily protecting our residents, our businesses and the visitors to our community.
