Observing National Police Week in Afghanistan

Last week, law enforcement officers, their families, and citizen supporters gathered at the annual Candlelight Vigil, the FOP ceremony at the U.S. Capitol and other events held in Washington, DC, as part of National Police Week. In addition, folks across the country were busy observing Peace Officers Memorial Day in their local communities. And one group found themselves celebrating locally … in Afghanistan.

A special agent sent the Memorial Fund photos from the Police Week ceremony attended by 150 law enforcement officers, from 20 federal law enforcement agencies, with representatives from four countries. General Mark Martins, Rule of Law Afghanistan was the guest speaker.

The Memorial Fund flag was signed by those in attendance and is being sent back to the US to be placed at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
