The International Foundation for Protection Officers (IFPO) would like to take a moment to recognize all of the dedicated and brave law enforcement men and women in the United States who serve or have served as police officers. There is no doubt that serving as a law enforcement officer is a unique calling, fueled by a visceral desire to protect communities.
The connection between police and security officers cannot be denied -- at their core, the two groups are striving for the same goal of protecting life and property. Those looking to break into law enforcement often seek employment in the security industry as an experience-builder; conversely, those who have left policing pursue security work as a post-retirement profession.
That said, during National Police Week -- but not only this week -- let's take a moment to respect, honor and remember police officers. -- IFPO.
Here is some additional information found on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund website:
"National Police Week occurs every May, and in 2021 we will be commemorating it with virtual events that can be viewed from anywhere in the world. From May 9–15, the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum will deliver programs to keep current officers safe and healthy, as well as ceremonies to honor those fallen officers whose names have been recently added to the Memorial. Be sure to mark your calendar for the 33rd Annual Candlelight Vigil, happening virtually on Thursday, May 13 at 8:00 p.m. (Eastern).
In-person events are planned for October 13-17, 2021 in Washington, DC to offer the same respect, honor, remembrance, and community support as National Police Week, while allowing law enforcement, survivors, and citizens to gather and pay tribute to those who gave their lives in the line of duty.
This year our focus for National Police Week is Officer Safety and Wellness (OSW). The goal is to keep law enforcement officers off the Memorial through daily morning workouts, a suicide prevention program, a special Destination Zero Cardiac Wellness Screening, and an OSW Product Showcase. See the schedule, below, and join us for our virtual events, especially the Candlelight Vigil to be livestreamed May 13 on our Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube pages. And be sure to download the National Police Week app available for free in Apple and Google app stores."
