This week marks National Police Week.
There will be several events in the District of Columbia to honor not only the law enforcement officers the DC Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), but also law enforcement officers from the various states and the federal government. This week was set-aside by a Presidential Proclamation signed by President John F. Kennedy in 1962.
The primary purpose during this week’s events is to pay special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. Prayerfully, there have not been any law enforcement loss of live within the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department. Please join me and the 5th District Citizens’ Advisory Council in honoring the service of DC MPD officers and other law enforcement officers around the country.
