National Police Week

Yesterday marked the beginning of National Police Week, an annual celebration honoring past and current police officers, and their commitment to protecting the safety of the nation. If you're in Washington D.C. this week, you'll have plenty to do! Events include memorial services, seminars for family members of fallen police officers, fundraisers, and an honor guard competition. National Police Week is sponsored by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

If you'd like information on criminal justice, law enforcement or corrections, stop by the NCC Libraries and pick up some resources:
