Police Weekend

National Police Week is an annual event every May that is a collaborative effort of many organizations dedicated to supporting honoring America’s law enforcement community. Every year, this special week is a time to honor those law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty and provide support to their survivors and the community.

The National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum (NLEM&M) wants you to know that National Police Week continues to be the dedicated time on the calendar to honor, remember, and celebrate American Law Enforcement.

The CALEB Network

The Community Alliances and Law Enforcement Bulletin Network (CALEB) is an initiative created from the Museum’s original National Bulletin Board which was created during the summer of 2020 to encourage the public to provide their feedback about current policing in America or share their ideas concerning law enforcement and community relationships.

CALEB goes beyond the idea of the National Bulletin Board by creating a direct line of communication between major law enforcement and community-based organizations. This allows the general public and public safety leaders to collaborate and create further discussions across the nation. Furthermore, the ideas can then be put into action, or by having these discussions, existing programs and events can be shared that already existed but were unknown.

CALEB’s dynamic partnership initiative and constructive contributions made by the community are the two vital components to building a strong Network.

The creation of CALEB was led by the members of the National Law Enforcement and Community Relations Advisory Board.
