National Police Week
In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers. Survivors and supporters honoring those fallen peace officers grew into a series of events that now includes candlelight vigils, pipe band competitions, conferences and National Peace Officers Memorial Service.
Mayor Bill Hastings proclaimed May 10-16, 2020 as National Police Week in Katy and ask that we all salute the service of the Katy Police Department for standing watch over our citizens, selflessly risking their lives to protect individuals, families, neighborhoods and property against crime. These officers, past and present, are dedicated to our community and have provided their service faithfully and with loyal devotion.
