Peace Officers Memorial Day & National Police Week
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. In recognition for this, Bucks County holds an annual Police Memorial Ceremony at St. Andrew RC Church on Swamp Road in Newtown. This ceremony will be held on Monday May 22, 2017 at 7:00 pm. The public is invited to attend this event as we show respect and honor those officers who have paid the ultimate price while protecting our communities.
