Scenes from Police Week 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.

NLEOMF's Officers of the Month

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) has honored some of the nation's bravest and most dedicated officers through its Officer of the Month program. Officers of the month are nominated by their supervisors, and then the nominees are reviewed by the NLEOMF staff. Nominations that make the cut receive consideration from a select committee of NLEOMF board members. Last year POLICE Magazine became official media sponsor for the Officer of the Month program. We have been publishing detailed stories of the officers who have received this honor in print, since June 2010. View this gallery for photos and capsule summaries of the honorees.

Federal LEO Association Conference

Federal LEO Association Conference

The Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA) recently held its 2010 national conference in Henderson, Nev. FLEOA is a volunteer organization that provides legal assistance and representation for its members. Federal officers do not have union support like municipal, county, and state law enforcement officers, so FLEOA fills this need for its members and advocates for legislation important to them. In fact, FLEOA's unified voice led to the Special Agent Samuel Hicks Families of Fallen Heroes Act being signed into law on June 1, 2010 (P.L. 111-178). These photos show some of the highlights of the FLEOA conference.
