Public invited to memorial ceremony for Law Enforcement Officer Memorial week

Posted: Updated:
The Scotts Bluff County Sheriff's Office, Nebraska State Patrol, Scottsbluff Police Department and Gering Police Department would like to invite the public to attend a memorial ceremony at the front steps of the Scotts Bluff County Courthouse in observance of Law Enforcement Officer Memorial week.

The ceremony will be held on Wednesday, May 14th at 10 a.m.

As part of the ceremony, government officials will read proclamations; names of fallen officers will be read in addition to law enforcement honors by the local Law Enforcement Honor Guard.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, D.C. to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. In addition to the national event in Washington, D.C. local law enforcement agencies throughout the country honor the memory of fallen officers by hosting local events.
