National Peace Officers Memorial Day was proclaimed by John F. Kennedy on May 15th in 1962.  This special day of recognition to those who died is one of only two days where all government agencies, commerce and the general public are to fly their U.S. flags at half staff. 

On May 15th, a special ceremony is hosted on the west steps of the U.S. Capitol Building to honor the fallen law enforcement officers and their relatives.

The primary organizers who come together each year in this important effort are the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, the Fraternal Order of Police/Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary and Concerns of Police Survivors.
