In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation designating May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day. As a result, the week that date falls is known as Police Week. This year, National Police Week will be held May 15-21. This nationally recognized week pays special gratitude to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others while honoring America’s law enforcement community still serving today.
The Schertz Police Department will be hosting a Police Memorial
on Tuesday, May 17, at 6:30 p.m.
at the Santikos in Cibolo (18124 IH 35N)
The community is welcome to attend the ceremony as we honor the lives of fallen brothers and sisters.
Unfortunately, Texas leads the nation in officer casualties in the line of duty. In 2021, 105 officers made the ultimate sacrifice. Please join us in honoring our police officers this May for their service and sacrifice to our community.
