President John F. Kennedy declared the first Peace Officers Memorial day on May 15, 1962, as a tribute to Peace Officers in honor of "those peace officers who, through their courageous deeds, have lost their lives or have become disabled in the performance of duty." And this day has been observed in our country annually since.
The Police Officer Memorial is a reminder that our everyday security does not come without a cost. We will never forget those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
