National Police Week

This week is National Police week, which recognizes officers killed in the line of duty.

According to an announcement from the Alameda Police Department, the names of 362 officers killed in the line of duty are being added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC, this year. These 362 names represent 162 officers who were killed during 2011, plus 199 officers who died in previous years but have not yet been recognized.

The Alameda Police Department notes it’s own losses, including Deward Burton Gresham, who died in a motorcycle collision on Saturday, July 11, 1942 and Robert James Davey Jr who was killed by gunfire on Thursday, March 3, 1983.

The Fraternal Order of Police and the Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary will host a ceremony today on the west steps of the U.S. Capitol to honor fallen law enforcement officers and their families.
