National Police Week

Wilmot police chief David Zuger
taking his oath of office.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

Our thanks to Chief Zuger and officers Russ and Eben Lamson for keeping Wilmot safe.
