May is a very significant month for police officers around the nation in that the month is set aside to honor officers who have lost their lives in the line if duty. The culmination of the month-long tribute is National Police Week (May 14 - 20 in 2023) with Peace Officer’s Memorial Day being held on May 16 this year. This month is also significant to the U.S. Capitol Police in that May 2, 1828 was the founding day for the force.
