Police Memorial Day- May 15

May 15th is Police Memorial Day.

Police officers from across Minnesota are standing in silent vigil for 24 hours at the Minnesota Capitol on Wednesday as part of the state’s ceremonies for Peace Officer Memorial Day.

In all, 306 officers have died in the line of duty in Minnesota. This year alone, the names of 282 officers killed in the line of duty were added to the National Law Enforcement Memorial — those names are joining the more than 24,000 names that are already etched there.


It seems almost daily we here of another attack on Law Enforcement. Sadly each year we must remember and add to the list of fallen hero’s. MNPEA remembers and mourns the loss and sacrifice.
