At tomorrow's City Council meeting Mayor Coonerty will present the Santa Cruz Police Department with a proclamation honoring National Police Week. The Department's Honor Guard will present colors.
In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
