national police week 2010: May 9-15

This week you will notice on many police blogs, the mention of National Police Week. I would bet that most people outside the LEO circle have no idea it exists. I didn't until HF became a cop! Here is an explanation of what this week is all about (found here):
Each May during National Police Week the nation pauses to recognize the service and sacrifice of U.S. law enforcement.

Established in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy and a joint resolution of Congress, National Police Week pays special tribute to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. Ceremonies are held in Washington, DC, and in communities across the country.
For more information about this week and the things happening around DC and the rest of the country, here are some websites that will most likely keep you informed:
