2021 National Police Week Graphic

On April 13, 2021, the Mayor and Board of Aldermen issued a proclamation honoring the service of the law enforcement professionals that have served and those currently serving the Town of Elon.  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 who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. Police Memorial Week is May 9th through May 15th.
