National Police Week 2021

May 11, 2021
National Police Week

This week marks National Police Week and Deerfield Township would like to recognize the outstanding work done by the officers of the Warren County Sherriff’s Department especially those stationed at the Deerfield Post led by Lt. Todd Snelling.


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.


For those interested in participating in virtual events, the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum has programs running between now and May 15th designed to keep current officers safe and healthy.  These events include:


  • Daily virtual workouts
  • Destination Zero Award announcements highlighting achievements in officer safety and wellness
  • Unveiling of the “Built for Blue” art structure
  • SAFLEO Suicide Prevention Program
  • Hall of Remembrance Museum Installation
  • Free cardiac wellness screening
  • Police Unity Tour Ceremony
  • The 33rd Annual Candlelight Vigil to honor those fallen officers whose names have been recently added to the National Peace Officers Memorial
