Everyone that has ever worn the badge, or had a family member who wears one, knows the ultimate sacrifice might be asked of them. We know that in an instant, any assignment can turn into danger, then death, then unending sorrow. When a police officer dies in the line of duty it is a tragedy for the entire community, but it is forever a memory of fellow police officers and their families. In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15th falls, as National Police Week. During the week of May 15th join Wake & District in remembering all fallen police offices.
On Saturday, 14 May 2011 members of Wake & District will be traveling to Washington, DC to participate in the 17th annual NCLEES Memorial March and Service.
