Orange County Cities Proclaim National Police Week
Orange County cities are proclaiming May 15 through May 21 as National Police Week, when officers will be honored nationwide for their sacrifice in keeping America’s communities safe.
The week, which is designated annually by the U.S. President and Congress, aligns with Peace Officers Memorial Day on May 15, when law enforcement officers who were killed or disabled in the line of duty are honored.
Irvine recognized its police department on May 10 during its city council meeting. The department’s honor guard was in attendance.
“The City of Irvine also recognizes those officers throughout the nation who have sacrificed their lives in service to their communities,” Irvine Mayor Farrah Khan said during the meeting. “On behalf of the city council and community, thank you to all our public safety officers for the vital service that you provide by protecting our residents, businesses, and visitors, and keeping Irvine the safest city in America.”
