History of National Police Week:

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed Public Law 87-726 designating May 15 as Peace Officers’ Memorial Day, and the week in which May 15 falls as National Police Week.  The law was amended by the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, Public Law 103-322, signed by President Bill Clinton, directing that the flag of the United States be displayed at half-staff on all government buildings on May 15 each year.  While the actual dates change from year to year, National Police Week is always the calendar week, beginning on Sunday, which includes May 15.

Potential Impact of COVID-19 on NPW In-Person Events:

Please note C.O.P.S. is moving forward with originally scheduled plans for National Police Week to be held in May 2021. However, we continue to closely monitor restrictions due to COVID-19 that would impact events in Washington, D.C. Any decisions to cancel in-person events will be made jointly by the organizations that plan National Police Week. Communication to the C.O.P.S. membership will be ongoing.  If you make the decision to purchase airline tickets, you should consider purchasing travel insurance.
