Thank You to Our Real Life Superheroes: POLICE OFFICERS!
In honor of National Police Week, we are celebrating our real life superheroes protecting us each and every day–POLICE OFFICERS! Read more below on how to be an every day superhero- like our police offcers– and start your summer off right!
Did You Know It’s National Police Week?
According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, President Kennedy proclaimed the calendar week of May 15th 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.
Thank you to these men and women who have dedicated their lives to being every day superheroes!
