National Peace Officer’s Week


I was out of town most of last week and fell behind on the blog but I’m back and slowly catching up . . .

I’ll post more later this evening but wanted to mention that part of my trip was in Washington, D.C., and while I was there I met some folks who were there for National Police Week. May 15 has been National Peace Officer’s Memorial Day, and the week containing May 15 has been National Police Week, since 1962 when President John F. Kennedy signed the law creating them. In honor of fallen law enforcement officers we – City Council – also declared last week as National Peace Officer’s Week in Golden.

As an aside, you’ll find a memorial garden behind the Jefferson County Courts and Administration Building (aka the Taj Mahal) for crime victims and county employees. There is at least one gazebo there dedicated to a Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputy slain in the line of duty.
