2017 National Police Week
In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, 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.
Please join the City of Gold Bar in saying “thank you” to those in law enforcement. Stop by your local police station this week and share your appreciation. The trip doesn’t have to be longer than a few minutes, but it would certainly make their day to know those in the community appreciate their efforts.
