Scenes from Police Week 2016

May 23, 2016

On Friday May 13 more than 20,000 people, including officers, survivors of fallen officers, and police supporters gathered on the National Mall in Washington, DC, for the 28th annual Police Week Candlelight Vigil. Normally held in and around the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, this year’s vigil was held on the Mall in the shadow of the Washington Monument and with the Capitol Hill as a backdrop. Attendees said the location made the event even more emotional.

POLICE Magazine sent photographer Lynn Cronquist to this year’s vigil. She captured images of survivors being escorted to their seats, dignitaries such as Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Attorney General Loretta Lynch speaking, the candlelight ceremony itself, and officers visiting the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial after the vigil to pay their respects to fallen comrades.
