President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15th of each year as “National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day” to honor those whose courageous deeds have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their community or have become disabled in the performance of their duty.
By a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, the calendar week that May 15th falls was designated “National Police Week.”
“The loyal men and women of the Mukilteo Police Department unceasingly provide a vital public service to our residents and community,” stated Mayor Jennifer Gregerson. “We owe a great deal to those who put their lives on the line each day to safeguard life and property, and protect our must vulnerable from harm. Please join me in thanking our Police Department for their faithful devotion to their responsibilities.”
The 35 members of the Mukilteo Police Department have a mission “to provide professional police service for and with the community.” Please help us honor them, especially on May 15.
