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. Law enforcement officers from around the world will converge on Washington, DC from May 14 through May 20, 2023, to participate in a number of planned events including the annual Police Unity Tour and Candlelight Vigil.
At ICE, we will honor the brave souls who answered a vital calling to uphold our laws and serve on the front lines in the fight against crime and terrorism.
These fallen officers live on in our national memory as Americans whose courage and commitment have shown the true meaning of heroism. We also enshrine their legacy on the ICE Wall of Heroes and offer our respect and prayers to their loved ones.
