Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week, 2012
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Every day, public safety officers work tirelessly to protect our citizens,
enforce our laws, and keep our neighborhoods safe. They report for duty
knowing full well the dangers they face and the sacrifices they may be
called upon to make. This week, we pay tribute to the thousands of men and
women who serve us with extraordinary bravery, and we remember the heroes
who have laid down their lives in pursuit of a safer, more just society.
While we can never fully repay them for their service, we must work to
ensure our law enforcement officers are equipped with the tools and
technology they need to do their jobs safely and effectively. My
Administration has devoted significant resources to improving officer
safety, providing bulletproof vests that have saved lives, training officers
to prevent and survive potentially lethal encounters, and strengthening our
ability to share information. We also continue to pursue our goal of
deploying a nationwide wireless network for public safety. For the first
time, this new system will give our Nation's police officers and first
responders a dedicated communication network in times of crisis helping
fulfill our promise to provide these brave men and women with tools worthy
of the sacrifices they make on our behalf.
We owe a profound debt to all those who have worn the badge, and to the
families whose care enables them to serve with courage and pride. When the
unthinkable happens and officers give their lives or are seriously injured
in the line of duty, we have an obligation to give their loved ones the
support they deserve. During Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week,
we recall the selflessness of our law enforcement officers and their
families, and we honor all those who devote their lives to forging a
stronger, safer America. Let us reflect on their invaluable contributions
as we enjoy the peace they bring to our communities, and let us vow that
their service will never be taken for granted.
By a joint resolution approved October 1, 1962, as amended (76 Stat. 676),
and by Public Law 103 322, as amended (36 U.S.C. 136 137), the President has
been authorized and requested to designate May 15 of each year as "Peace
Officers Memorial Day" and the week in which it falls as "Police Week."
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America,
do hereby proclaim May 15, 2012, as Peace Officers Memorial Day and May 13
through May 19, 2012, as Police Week. I call upon all Americans to observe
these events with appropriate ceremonies and activities. I also call on
Governors of the United States and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico,
officials of the other territories subject to the jurisdiction of the United
States, and appropriate officials of all units of government, to direct that
the flag be flown at half staff on Peace Officers Memorial Day. I further
encourage all Americans to display the flag at half staff from their homes
and businesses on that day.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fourteenth day of May,
in the year of our Lord two thousand twelve, and of the Independence of the
United States of America the two hundred and thirty-sixth.
