Federal and state flags are at half staff today in accordance with President George W. Bush’s 2002 proclamation, “Peace Officers’ Memorial Day and Police Week.”
Here’s an excerpt from the proclamation:
“The name of each fallen officer has a place of honor on the National Law Enforcement Officers’ Memorial wall in Washington, D.C. This monument ensures that the valor of the more than 15,000 law enforcement officers lost since 1794 will never be forgotten.
“Peace Officers’ Memorial Day and Police Week pay tribute to the local, State, and Federal law enforcement officers who serve and protect us with courage and dedication.
~George W. Bush
