PEACE OFFICERS’ MEMORIAL DAY

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as "Police Week".

The Norfolk Police Department pays tribute annually to all Law Enforcement Officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice, but in particular honors the 39 Norfolk Officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty over the past century while wearing the badge of the Norfolk Police Department. The first name on the Norfolk Police Honor Roll is John McNerney, who died on September 22, 1904; the last is Brian W. Jones who died on May 30, 2014. As the name of each deceased officer is called a memorial bell chimes.

Many beautiful floral wreaths are given by community and law enforcement organizations. As has been the CPAAAN custom over many years, our association presents a commerative arrangement in grateful memory of our officers. Click here for memorial photo page.
