The 20th Annual Candlelight Vigil, sponsored by the National Law Enforcement Officers
Memorial Fund (NLEOMF), will be held at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial
in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, May 13, 2008. Communities across North America have
built memorials to honor peace officers who have died or become disabled in the line of
duty. May 15 has been designated National Peace Officers Memorial Day, and most local
communities hold a memorial service in remembrance of police officers who have made the
supreme sacrifice for their communities. Cover photo courtesy of Peggy Harrison, NLEOMF.
