A single memorial service hosted by the National Fraternal Order of Police 41 years ago has turned in to a extraordinary event, attended by thousands, in honor of our nation’s heroes.
All across America, families of fallen peace officers will head to our nation’s Capital to honor the life of America’s finest who gave their life in the service of others. On 15 May, we’ll gather on the West Front of the Capitol to honor our fallen Brothers and Sisters who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their community. The sacrifice of these fallen officers and their families will never be forgotten.
In part two of a four part series focused on Police Week, National FOP President Patrick Yoes sits down with Dianne Bernhard, Executive Director of Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS), to discuss the preparations for Police Week 2023 and the massive undertaking of COPS to bring the surviving families to Washington, D.C. for a life-changing experience.
