National Police Week

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation designating May 15th of each year as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which it falls as Police Week. During this week thousands of law enforcement officers meet in our Nation’s Capital to join a number of planned events honoring the ones who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The Village of Obetz maintains a local law enforcement agency—the Obetz Police Department—which consists of twenty individuals. These individuals knowingly put themselves in danger and work diligently to keep our community safe. Police Week provides an opportunity for the community to express their appreciation to these 20 officers who play an essential role in safeguarding the rights and freedoms of the residents of Obetz. Police Week is also an opportunity to remember the many law enforcement officers that have given their lives in service of their communities.

Mayor D. Greg Scott presented a Proclamation to the Village of Obetz Police Department at the council meeting on May 13, 2019, recognizing their hard work and dedication. Click HERE to view the full Proclamation.
