National Police Week occurs every May, with May 15 proclaimed as National Peace Officers Memorial Day. The calendar week in which May 15 falls is National Police Week. This tradition was started in 1962 by President Kennedy, to pay special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty and to encourage the safety of current police personnel. The 34th Annual Candlelight Vigil will be held on Friday, May 13, at 8:00 p.m. https://nleomf.org/memorial/programs/national-police-week-2022/candlelight-vigil/
As the Comp Alliance insures many municipal police departments across New York State, we would like to acknowledge the hard work and hazardous conditions our law enforcement officers endure to provide us with safety and protection. In an effort to keep our member police departments safe, the Comp Alliance Risk Management department has put together daily safety tips, beginning May 16 and running through May 20, to remind them of the importance of maintaining safe work practices and preventing workplace injuries.
