DLTK's Crafts for Kids
National Police Week

In 1962, President John F.  Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week surrounding May 15th as Police Week.  Other countries (including Canada) have begun celebrating during the same week.

Currently, nearly fifty thousand law enforcement officers from departments throughout the United States as well as from agencies throughout the world visit Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Wall - image from WikipediaNational Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Wall:

On average, one law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty somewhere in the United States every 53 hours. Since the first known line-of-duty death in 1791, more than 19,000 U.S. law enforcement officers have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Much of the Police Week centers on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial wall in Washington, D.C., whose walls feature the names of the nearly 19,000 law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line of duty.

Designed by architect Davis Buckley, the memorial features a reflecting pool which is surrounded by walkways on a 3-acre park.  Along the walkways are walls that are inscribed with names of all U.S. law enforcement officers — federal, state, and local — who have died in the line of duty.


lioness statue - image from WikipediaThe Memorial features four bronze lions--two male and two female—each watching over a pair of lion cubs.  The adult lions were sculpted by Raymond Kaskey, the cubs by George Carr.

Below each lion is carved a different quotation:

It is not how these officers died that made them heroes, it is how they lived.
          ~ Vivian Eney Cross, Survivor

In valor there is hope.
          ~ Tacitus

The wicked flee when no man pursueth:  but the righteous are as bold as a lion.
          ~ Proverbs 28:1

Carved on these walls is the story of America, of a continuing quest to preserve both democracy and decency, and to protect a national treasure that we call the American dream.
          ~
President George H.W.  Bush
