In Remembrance and Recognition: National Police Week
In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week.
Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.
In Garland, we remember and recognize our fallen Police Officers who gave their lives in the line of duty:
Gerald Walker: Shot and killed in the line of duty on Nov. 15, 1989
David Moore: Shot and killed in the line of duty on Feb. 15, 1997
Ronnie Lerma: Killed in the line of duty during a motor-vehicle accident on Sept. 21, 1998
