    National Police Week 2020

    Each year in the week surrounding National Peace Officers Memorial Day, over 25,000 law enforcement officers and their families visit Washington, D.C. to honor fallen law enforcement heroes. On Saturday, May 16th, 2020, the LSSD will be hosting a 5K Memorial Run, which is being held in Dillimore. This 5k Memorial Run will not only raise awareness of law enforcement line of duty deaths and pays tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, but it also generates funds for the Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP) and Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), two organizations that honor fallen officers and provide support to their survivors.

    Statistics over the last decade show that on average 157 officers are killed in the line of duty each year. The Officer Down Memorial Page pays tribute to each of those heroes and is ranked as one of the top five law enforcement websites in the United States. ODMP also partners with organizations that provide free bulletproof vests to officers, honors the hundreds of K9 officers who have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.

    For those who wish to participate in the 5K Memorial Run, please arrive at Dillimore before 7:45 pm.
