Peace Officer Memorial Day :: Flags Fly at Half-Staff

Peace Officer Memorial day

Those Who Made the Ultimate Sacrifice and Those Who Continue to Serve

Today, in the United States, some 900,000 law enforcement officers put their lives on the line for the safety and protection of others. They serve with valor and distinction – and with great success. Federal statistics show that violent and property crime rates in the United States are at historic lows, thanks in large measure to the dedicated service of the men and women of law enforcement.

That protection comes at a price, however. Each year, there are approximately 60,000 assaults on law enforcement officers, resulting in nearly 16,000 injuries. Sadly, over the last decade, an average of 150 officers a year have been killed in the line of duty. And throughout U.S. history, more than 20,000 law enforcement officers have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Today the flag flies at half-staff to honor those who have been lost in the line of duty.
