    St. Paul - Law enforcement officers from all over Minnesota will stand in silent vigil at the Peace Officers Memorial on the State Capitol grounds to remember the 276 fallen Minnesota law enforcement officers who have lost their lives while protecting their communities. The vigil will begin on Saturday May 14th at 7:00 p.m. and continue for 24 hours. Officers will stand for 20 minutes shifts. The Law Enforcement Memorial Association (LEMA) of Minnesota is coordinating the annual event.

    National Police Week 2016

    In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, 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.

Honoring Law Enforcment Who Have Given The Ultimate Sacrifice. 

LEMA is dedicated to assisting the families and home agencies of those law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty.
