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. National Peace Officers Memorial Day, established to honor and remember our fallen law enforcement officers, is one of only two days each year during which government agencies, businesses and residents are to fly their U.S. flags at half-staff.
