Peace Officers Memorial Day is celebrated on May 15th of every year to honor American law enforcement officers injured or killed in the line of duty. Falling during police week, its observance pays tribute to LEOs by offering support to their surviving family members and colleagues. On this day, many government agencies, private citizens, and organizations fly flags at half-staff and conduct services in remembrance of officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Washington, D.C., marks the day with a memorial event, a candlelight vigil, and speeches.

On October 1, 1961, Congress requested President John F. Kennedy to designate May 15th as a day for commemorating peace officers. The following year, President Kennedy issued a declaration for the country to observe Peace Officers Memorial Day on May 15th. Americans formally began observing Peace Officers Memorial Day in 1963, several months after President Kennedy signed the bill into law.

How to Celebrate Peace Officers Memorial Day

Just like the official flags flown across the nation, if you have a flag at home, you can lower it to half its usual height as a show of respect and solidarity. Light your windowsills with candles in honor of the brave members of the police force killed or injured while keeping us safe. Help the families of officers killed in the line of duty or support an officers’ charity. Whether you can donate your time, food, money, or clothing, find a local charity and see what would help. Encourage others to celebrate the day and share on social media using #PeaceOfficersMemorialDay.
