National Police Week a Success
ARLINGTON, Virginia – The National Police Support Fund staff attended National Police Week in Washington D.C.
The staff conversed with men and women who participated in the Police Unity Tour Arrival Ceremony which was held at the National Law Enforcement Memorial. 21,000 names of men and women fill the walls at the memorial honoring those who have died in the line of duty.
Interviews were conducted to get feedback as to what their current concerns are within the law enforcement field. Based on the interviews, there is a great concern for officer safety funding, police shortage, lack of electing strong judges and criminal justice officials, combating the American drug epidemic and biased media.
Other events attended included the 30th annual Candlelight Vigil, the 23rd annual LawRide and Wreath Laying Ceremony and the 37th annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day Services. President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence both spoke at the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day Services in front of the Capital Building.
The goal for attending National Police Week was to not only raise awareness of the organization’s value and mission but learn from the attendees of their concerns for law enforcement. The organization is dedicated to promoting the interests of law enforcement officers within the national political process.
