The Bemidji Police Department, Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office and Blackduck Police Department are hosting a Law Enforcement Memorial Service to honor fallen police Officers who have died in the line of duty.

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15th 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.

The Public is invited to attend the service scheduled for Thursday, May 16th, 2013 at 5:30 P.M. The service will be held at the Judicial Center Courtyard located at the corner of Beltrami Avenue NW and 6th Street. If raining, the service will be held indoors at the Bemidji Fire Department, 316 5th St. NW.

This service is held each year during Law Enforcement Memorial Week in conjunction with the National Law Enforcement Memorial Service which was held in Washington DC, last Sunday. This year we are remembering Cold Spring Officer Thomas Decker who was gunned down in the line of duty on November 29, 2012.

For further information of for questions please contact Chaplain Derek Claypool at 218-751-4506.
