ICE honors fallen heroes during Police Week

Throughout the month of May, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) joins its law enforcement partners throughout the country to honor and pay tribute to those officers and agents who have made the ultimate sacrifice to make our nation and all her citizens safer and more secure.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 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 including the annual Blue Mass, Police Unity Tour, and Candlelight Vigil.

Honor Guard

During National Police Week each year in May, ICE joins its law enforcement partners throughout the country to pay tribute to fallen officers and special agents who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the safety and security of Americans.

ICE’s official National Honor Guard stands proud as an important part of these efforts.

As National Honor Guard members, in addition to honoring the fallen, they have represented the agency at formal events and ceremonies often at a moment’s notice, leaving lifelong impressions on families and loved ones during their difficult time.
