In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15th falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. Since 1791, over 20,000 law enforcement officers have died in the line of duty (http://www.nleomf.org/facts/enforcement/). On December 20, 1963, Griffith Police Lieutenant Texas Minter became part of this honored group of heroes. This week we bear witness to their bravery and sacrifice.
