Peace Officers' Memorial Ceremony

Law enforcement officers throughout Riverside County gathered Monday to pay tribute to the comrades who have died in the line of duty since 1895

In 1962 President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation into law:

To pay tribute to the law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and to voice our appreciation for all those who currently serve on the front lines of the battle against crime, the Congress, by a joint resolution approved October 1, 1962 (75 Stat.676), has authorized and requested the President to designate May 15 of each year as "Peace Officers Memorial Day," and the week in which it falls as "Police Week" and by Public Law 103-322 (36 U.S.C. 175) has requested that the flag be flown at half-staff on Peace Officers' Memorial Day.
