Police Week 2017

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

On Thursday May 11, 2017 beginning at 6:00pm, the Chester County FOP Lodge #11 will hold a memorial service in front of the Lodge at 215 N. Church Street, West Chester, PA
