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. Since then, this week has been allocated to honor the service and sacrifice of those law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty, and those who continue to serve and protect our communities.
The Castle Shannon Police Department recognizes our peers at the local, county, regional, state and national level. We are grateful for our law enforcement partnerships and we mourn the loss of all fallen Law Enforcement Officers, and send our prayers to their families, friends and agencies.
