Law Enforcement Candlelight Vigil
Join us for a candlelight vigil to remember local fallen peace officers.
The vigil is part of events for Police Week in Albuquerque.
About Police Week
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 which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
In conjunction with National Police Week, the following activities have been planned to honor local peace officers who have fallen in the line of duty.
