National Peace Officers Memorial Day – May 15

We want to remember and honor all federal, state, county and local officers who were killed or disabled in the line of duty.

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. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week honors those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

Our prayers are for the law enforcement families that have experienced the pain of losing their loved one in a line of duty death, or daily walk beside a loved one who was disabled in the line of duty. The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office thanks the brave men and women who put their lives on the line every day to serve the citizens of Sioux County.
